Date released: 1987
A very unique and special Hayes treatment of the song made popular by Steve Green. An eerie piano accompaniment sets the early intimate mood describing the quality of love found at Calvary. This launches into an orchestral-like choral treatment of the powerful chorus and then recaptures the contemplative beauty of the text, “sins atoned and heaven gained.” This is appropriate year-round, and has a beautiful and somewhat challenging piano part, and moderately difficult choral parts.
