The Taliesin Orchestra bring their gentle and almost ambient approach to covering popular music to the genre of Christian music, delivering ten hymns with their usual lush approach. With each song being very recognizable and smooth, Sacred is a nice way to approach the material without experimenting too much with the original structure. Anyone looking for a meditative way to experience Christian hymns should look no further; this album is easy to get sucked into.
