iTunes Review

De-Plumed is less a “best-of” collection than an artistic summary of the Choir’s musical journey over the past 25 years. Founding members Derri Daughtery and Steve Hindalong selected one track from each of their albums, then re-recorded them in sparse acoustic form, dispensing from the atmospheric guitar effects that have often defined their work. Heard in this pristine form, the tunes can be more fully appreciated as deeply spiritual and compassionate meditations upon God, love, friendship and loss, told with insight and a touch of humor. Daughtery’s high tenor remains one of the most distinctive voices in Christian rock — he is in especially strong form on the bittersweet “Hey Gene” and the tender “A Sentimental Song.” “Clouds” captures the Choir at their most mystically reverent, while “Enough To Love” ranks among the most poetically graceful praise numbers in recent memory. Sixpence None the Richer’s Matt Slocum adds caressing cello textures at key moments.

2 new albums within 6 months - wha?

de-plumed; laid bare; exposed; featherless. Grammy nominated, Dove Award winning & critically acclaimed group The Choir has recorded twelve studio albums over the past twenty five years. With the input of their loyal fan-base, the group selected one song from each album and re-recorded them acoustically. Intimate and vulnerable renditions of classic and current material are augmented with expressive cello arrangements performed by Matt Slocum of Sixpence None The Richer.
Produced by Steve Hindalong and Derri Daugherty of The Choir (also City On A Hill/God Of Wonders).
Songs from de-plumed are represented from the following catalog of releases by The Choir:

Love it

With a song from each of their albums, masterfully re-done and stripped to its essentials, this collection is a must for all Choir fans.

The Choir does it again......

After releasing their latest incredible album earlier this year, Burning Like The Midnight Sun, they turn around with another great album. A collection of songs, some chosen by fans, and redone in an intimate, acoustic style like only The Choir can. Why The Choir never got the critical acclaim they so richly deserve is beyond me. Their entire catalogue is absolutely phenomenal and while some bands that have been together as long as they have put out semi-good albums so late in their career, The Choir seem to keep putting out stellar efforts. If you have not got this album, you need to, because the way these songs have been redone acoustically just brings out another 'side' to them and makes you appreciate them even more. If you haven't bought Burning LIke The Midnight Sun yet, that is a must-have album as well, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!! Many thanks to The Choir for putting this out as it is yet again another incredible album for the fans to savor!!!
