Jean Watson – Sacred

For the past several months I have not been very active regards to writing reviews.  After 19 years of listening and writing I needed to step back and focus on other things.  However, “Sacred” is the one project that never left my top playlists.  It is simply majestic and uplifting.  From the beautiful Celtic tones to the heartening lyrics “Sacred” is a complete triumph.  Watson even brings new life (and lyrics) to a standard – “The Doxology” which inspires praises to the good Lord. 

One of the most delightful songs is “St. Patrick’s Breastplate.”  I love the dramatic ups and downs of the soundtrack, the vocal crescendos and the swelling strings.  There are also a handful of classics like “Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee,” “Fairest Lord Jesus,” and another favorite on this album, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” Cap that off with the tender “How Can I Keep From Singing” as the album just keeps on giving and giving. As a bonus, Watson impresses with her violin playing as well on “Hallelujah.” 

Aside from the new album, Watson has also released a new book, a 40 day devotional titled “Everything Can Change In 40 Days.”  I have not read the book but you can find info on both the book and “Sacred” on her official website at
