It is difficult frankly to keep up with the releases from the Gaither camp - they seem to be appearing faster than your average bus service! This slickly produced live recording was made in Toronto and features members (and ex-members) of the Gaither Vocal Band along with guest artists. Attendance at these events is very high and clearly there is a huge fan base for the music contained here. For me the highlights were "The Trumpet Of Jesus" sung enthusiastically by Russ Taff (who joined the Gaither Vocal Band in 2002), a worshipful recording of "Sanctuary" by Jessy Dixon and a beautiful piano instrumental of "Shout To The Lord" joined in medley with "Rhapsody In Blue"(!) played by Anthony Burger. However, to my ears many of the other songs (18 tracks are on the CD) were mediocre. For Gaither fans only.
