AllMusic Review by

The spiritual and inspirational melodies in this fine compilation gain from the beautiful harmonizing of the Mills brothers. The Brothers' deep and husky richness of tone is as warm-sounding as a church organ. On "Brighten the Corner Where You Are," "Holy, Holy, Holy," and "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," an otherworldly sound seems to descend upon the ears, in an almost divine experience. The group's light touch and moderately fast tempo gives "Bringing in the Sheaves" a joyous swing.

The contemplative calm and sober faith of "Sweet Hour of Prayer" resonates with the Brothers' sonorous and dulcet vocal unity. They employ their varying vocal ranges to give an extra dimension and strength to the hymn's potent yet simple richness.
