This is the debut album from a collective of musicians from Dorset's churches. The core team of Andi Norton, Matt Bridle and Gary Todd all demonstrate their skills on "We Will Not Be Shaken". Penned and sung by Andi, backed by Gary's programming, with Matt on vocals it is a powerful opener to the album. "Crowned With Love" has a beautiful arrangement as Andi and Nikki sing "You've crowned us with everlasting love." "I Am Yours" begins with a statement from our Lord, "You Know Just Who I Am" with the song's title as the chorus, and then a disciple's reply (voiced by Mark and Andi) "You paid my ransom and set me free," concluding with, "Exchanged, forgiven, it is done." Outstanding guitar playing from Gary and Andi enhances a great song. The most upbeat number, written by Matt and sung by Rachel Bridle, is "Dancing". The drums of Mark Adkins establish a powerful rhythm on the penultimate track, "Sing To The Lord", a declaration of God's sovereignty. An impressively professional production and some quality songs make this a well above average worship project.
