Brenton Brown, the highly popular South African-born worship leader, has released several CDs over the last few years but this is his first live set. Cut with his Worship Republic band, this is a jam-packed hour's worth of anthemic worship, across 14 tracks, recorded live with thousands of students in Dayton, Ohio. The songs buzz with all the passion and energy you'd expect, all the more remarkable when considering this recording was made at the end of a two year tour! The buzz isn't solely due to the audience though, Brenton and the lads exude joy, as shown on the powerful rendition of "Humble King" and an enjoyable bluegrass romp on "I Saw The Light". Despite its strong points this is in truth a hard release to get deeply excited about. Many of the songs here are available on other recordings, either by Brenton or other artists, with much the same arrangements so these are nearly all familiar.

Product Description
A South African native and acclaimed worship leader, Brenton Brown's journey changed when he moved to England and joined Oxford Vineyard. Though still young, Brenton wrote some of the Church's best-loved songs: Your Love Is Amazing, Lord Reign In Me & Holy, Holy, Holy. Through a difficult season of health challenges and thinking his days at the front of the church were over, a dramatic revelation of God's sustaining power transformed everything. Out of that season came the modern day classic Everlasting God. Now with the wealth of those experiences behind him comes the declaration God My Rock.

This new 15-track worship release includes 14 live worship songs and the radio version of the title track.

i have spent hours trying to find the songs you wrote for my ipod, and wonder if there is a list (somewhere) of the music you wrote.
thank you, and thank you for the wonderful worship times.
