This is a budget priced reissue of the 1991 Worship Leaders album that Kingsway originally released. It bears returning to. The worship songs of Chris Bowater are always beautifully crafted and lack some of the predictability of Graham Kendrick's oeuvre. This selection is also very well arranged, with the usual excellent contributions from Dave Fitzgerald, Raul D'Oliveira and Les Moir (among others). The vocalists - including the wonderful Nanette Welmans - bring their own special abilities to the songs and there is a real atmosphere of worship which pervades the album, helped along by the segued groups of songs. After the initial "Here We Are", a Dallas Holm song, all the offerings here are Chris's own, and all the favourites are included -"Reign In Me". "Holy Spirit We Welcome You"; "Here I Am"., "God Of Grace" and so on. What is so good on these albums though, is the opportunity of hearing the writer's songs as he arranged them himself and with first class musicians performing them.

This cd was my very favorite during a wonderful and trying period of my life. I lost it while moving and have looked for it in various places but it was not available. I would like to find this very special cd,
if you know where I could find it would you let me know? thank you. Kevin Fortier
