Singing “The Old Rugged Cross” as a simple hymn can be a soul-stirring experience, but Gray’s treatment of this chestnut is at turns comfortable as a well-worn sweater, then affecting as a cool breeze on a hot day. Subtle harmonies underscore the text in a fresh way without being avant-garde for its own sake.
