    Audrey has such a rich, pure, and uncomplicated approach to songwriting and worship that it's truly satisfying. She avoids fads or trends which instills a timeless element to her music. Even unto death is one of her best works yet.

    I discovered Audrey Assad through a David Brooks column in the NY Times, of all places. He linked to her video "I Shall Not Want" from her outstanding album "Fortunate Fall." Subtle, reverential, deep, and unlike anyone else: I was hooked. Her followup EP, "Death Be Not Proud," was equally excellent. A caveat before continuing: I am not a fan of much of what is termed contemporary "worship" music in some churches, which uses repetition and crescendo to evoke an emotional response. I'm too jaded, I suppose. But I have no patience for it. When I read that Audrey next wanted to produce worship music for churches, I wasn't encouraged, but I knew I'd give it a listen. My first encounter with her latest music was through a video she posted for the haunting, traditional hymn "I Wonder as I Wander": Dark scenes of wintry mountains, layered with her ethereal vocals and a distant ominous electronic soundscape. Perfect. If Sarah McLachlan made a record of hymns produced by Daniel Lanois, it might sound like this. That moody Lanois-esque echoing carries over throughout much of "Inheritance," which thankfully contains the gorgeous "I Wonder as I Wander." Most of the album is made up of traditional hymns, which Audrey sings with palpable reverence. A few favorites so far: "How Can I Keep from Singing," with its steady thrum and heavenly choir; the tender "O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus," with Fernando Ortega; and "Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet." The latter is the darkest, most experimental song on the album. All too often in hymnography, we forget that we are, in fact, singing about blood. This innovative rendition makes that sobering realization inescapable. My least favorite songs on this album eventually go down the climatically repetitive path I dreaded. "New Every Morning" and "Even Unto Death" both start out beautifully but eventually lapse into overblown repetition. If I could find a way to edit out the last third of each of these, I would, but I suspect a large number of Audrey's fans, especially those from more charismatic backgrounds, wouldn't thank me. And even in these songs, Audrey's interpretation remains consistently prayerful. Overall, this is a marvelous collection from one of the most interesting artists out there. Highly recommended.

    What I most enjoy about this album is that it is an album in the fullest sense. Each individual track is excellent, but the entire set has a flow that makes it greater than the sum of its parts. This record is truly a work of art. Audrey somehow captures the beauty of these hymns as they are and does something wonderfully new. Both those who sing these songs regularly and those who are less familiar will find the arrangements accessible. Inheritance is great for when I’m setting aside time to be reflective or contemplative, but truly I find myself listening to it regularly. Audrey Assad is one of the most humble, real, yet inspiring voices in music today. Buy this album, right now!
