Album Review

Part of the charm of former country singer Barbara Fairchild's gospel albums is that the Nashville-based singer, who was a mainstream country star through the '70s, still records in the style of her previous hits. Though recorded in 2002, the songs on Wings of a Dove sound like a countrypolitan session from three decades before: Floyd Cramer-style piano, pedal steel guitars, sweeping strings, and sweet choral backing vocals underpin Fairchild's close-miked lead vocals throughout.
