My first somewhat rebellious reaction was to the title – Essential? How come I haven’t heard of most of these songs? Having got over that totally self-centred, initial reaction I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard once I got the CD on. Another nice collection of pop worship songs produced by Chris Norton, many of which really hit the mark. On the whole the songs (from the pens of Steve Hindalong, John Nuttall, Martin Smith and others) are presented in an unfussy and straightforward way which would be excellent if I wanted to learn any and then to teach them to others. And some of them I would like to consider picking up, especially Phil Hart and Joanne Hogg’s song “Pierced”. Matt Redman is represented by the title track “Let My Words Be Few” which is a song I’m sorry I missed earlier but am glad to be acquainted with now. So there you have it, a decent collection of modern Christ-centred songs, put together with taste and subtlety. Essential or otherwise I can see myself listening to this for a while.
