hymn is defined as a song written specifically
for the purpose of praise, adoration or prayer,
and brings to one, nostalgic memories of solemn
and reverential worship. In today's times, when
modern "praise and worship' songs have replaced
the more traditional hymns, this endeavour is
to revive them, and introduce the younger generation
to their beauty and grandeur.
The response of all albums from both within India and overseas has been overwhelming. In keeping with the very positive response we present the fifth album of Classic Hymns and the 1st in a regional language.
