Listened to what I thought was a lovely version of one of my favorite hymns on YouTube - Holy, Holy, Holy - and can't (for the life of me) find who it is singing this. Can anyone offer any help here?

What's a little odd is that I typically don't like any reworking of old hymns (can't, for example, stand that you hardly ever hear 3 of the original verses of Amazing Grace) and they exchange a couple of words - which works. They even end the last verse differently than the first (where they preserve "Blessed Trinity"). But the arrangement is very reverent, full and expressive....

Thanks for checking it out, though!

I don't if they're the same singers (Keith Lancaster and the Acappella Company) but this just came on and it's quite beautiful also:

Nice sound but not the same group, unfortunately.

The multiple voices are nice, though the lyrics a bit repetitive for me.

You're posting with someone who finds very little modern Christian music that compares with the older hymns - so I tend to favor the hymns.

I loved that. Sang along and remembered singing this in Sunday school so very long ago. Thank you.

My 4-year old son loves it too.

My 8-year old son likes Before the Throne of God Above

Exposing children to hymns is great, I think. They start singing without even realizing what they are doing..
