Currently listening to Glad A Cappella Project III.

As a rabid a cappella music nut, I’m a huge fan of Glad’s a cappella music. Their a cappella project series is phenomenal, starting with the nothing-short-of-groundbreaking original “Project.”

Project III is more of the same arranging innovation/brilliance and vocal proficiency. Glad has done a ton of hymns (including their a cappella Hymns project), and this recording is no exception. The Solid Rock, Arise My Soul Arise, Crown Him with Many Crowns, My God I Love You, and also We Gather Together are the timeless classics given new and stellar treatments here.

Other especially notable tracks are Keith Green’s Your Love Broke Through and the Bob Kauflin composed/arranged Doer of Your Word and Stars in the Universe. I love Bob Kauflin! He’s one of my favorite a cappella arrangers, a giant in the field. Truly a musical genius. He also composed and arranged my favorite Glad song of all time, In the First Light, the epic a cappella anthem found on the original Project.

The A Cappella Project III is another landmark recording from Glad, a must-have for serious a cappella aficionados.
