Fresh from their excellent 'Kendrick Collection' album last year, when Noel Tredinneck and the lads and lasses who constitute All Souls (now Prom Praise) Choir and Orchestra took all before them to produce their orchestral worship. Now they set their sights on a Christmas proms. This is no mean feat, and they've done it again. Two Kendrick numbers survive: "Fighter" is better here sung by Catherine Fish than Cliff's version on the 'Kendrick Collection'. Delight at the incursions into the classics with Jules Massenet's "Meditation" bringing forth a superlative violin solo from Gordon Stoke; Poulenc's "Rondeau" and Dvorak's "New World Symphony". Other modern Christian songs include "Hosanna Hosanna" and "Majesty" but it's the hymns which sound slighty out of place on this. "All Creatures Of Our God And King" and "Yours Be The Glory" are stirring enough yet don't quite seem to fit with the rest of the set. Are they just here to satisfy part of the audience and get more posteriors on seats when touring? Good collection all the same. Now what next for '93
