This is the second recording in Brentwood's Acoustic Worship series of favourite choruses. Anointed music always reaches somewhere deep inside, and Graham Kendrick's "Shine, Jesus, Shine" is a good choice to lead us into God's presence. The players and vocalists rate special thanks for their teamwork, presenting well-known songs in a fresh way - and how encouraging it is to hear all the words! Several of my favourites, "Awesome In This Place", "I Stand In Awe" (why don't we hear more of Mark Altrogge?) and "We Will Glorify" are sung with more than usual sensitivity. There are three of Twila Paris's songs - her wish that those listening to her music will experience the reality and joy of a relationship with Jesus Christ should be granted. All in all, a valiant attempt to present old songs in a new way.
