To close out the year in gospel music, it’s time to list my personal favorite recordings of 2013. If you’ve been following the blog in recent days, the album that takes the #1 spot should be of no surprise. The Kingdom Heirs’ Redeeming the Time was the only project to which I gave a 5-star rating this year, and it scored eight songs on my Top 40 list in 2013, including three of the top four. For a fan of quartet singing, it is a dream recording.
Other highlights of the year included the two outstanding releases by the Collingsworth Family. In my list, they sandwich one of the most solid top-to-bottom recordings of the year, from Greater Vision.
