Chicago has long been one of the most happening places for gospel choirs, outfits of the calibre of The Thompson Community Singers setting the benchmark for all that's awesome when it comes to hitting a funky groove and getting down to some serious church. By no means the least in the Windy City Hall Of Fame is the Cosmopolitan Church Of Prayer Choir under the direction of Dr Charles G Hayes, founded over four decades ago and so well respected that no less a figure than gospel legend Albertina Walker is moved to declare in the sleevenotes that gospel is alive and well in Chicago thanks to these "power packed and anointed" veterans of gospel singing. Listening to the album I can only wholeheartedly agree. This is everything that a gospel choir album should be -10 strong songs, gutsy delivery by a plethora of lead singers and a choir on top form, excellent production, nearly 56 minutes Of playing time and top quality from start to finish. Fans of gospel choirs should seek this one out pronto.
