Letter to Heaven: Songs of Faith and Inspiration

DollyParton.jpg

Dolly’s collection of spirituals is basically a re-release of her 1971 album Golden Streets of Glory, with seven additional tracks. Her crystal-clear soprano shines on “Yes I See God” and “I’ll Keep Climbing” (written by Dolly’s aunt Dorothy Jo Hope) and on the album’s only previously unreleased track, “Would You Know Him.” Dolly brings a simple, unvarnished approach to several spiritual classics such as “I Believe,” a cover of Ferlin Husky’s “Wings of a Dove,” a rousing version of “Comin’ for to Carry Me Home” and “How Great Thou Art,” which sounds reverent with its church bells and subtle piano-and-choir backing. Dolly immortalizes her own grandfather in “Daddy Was an Old Time Preacher Man,” her 1970 hit with Porter Wagoner, and ends the collection with her signature song, “The Seeker.” Dolly’s plucky warble adds enthusiasm to these inspirational classics.
