Well-known Bethel Music songs, such as “It is Well,” “You Make Me Brave,” “Over My Head,” “This is Amazing Grace” and more, have been reconstructed with lush instrumentation set against orchestral sonic landscapes. The recording continues what Bethel Music began in 2013 with the release of its first instrumental album, Without Words, which received wide critical acclaim. calls Without Words “an epic soundtrack of the life of faith and the pursuit of Christ.” notes that “with unique instruments filling in for the vocals…you can almost concentrate and ‘feel’ the music even more.” suggests that the “fantastic arrangements” be used “for pre-service music, transitional tunes and ministry music” and lauds “the musicality and creativity of Bethel Music.”
