Once again Ishmael and his helpers have given us an album with a cheerful mixture: praise and worship, psalms, salvation kid's voices, Ish himself, Duggie Dug-Dug, fun, tambourines and even bells. Belinda Horley has done a great job in training the wonderful children's choir. As usual the musicianship is of a high standard - congratulations Si Fenner, Doug Horley, Mark Topley and Nick Haigh. The addition of backing tracks makes this album a good resource for children's ministry, to encourage and challenge young believers. There are some memorable lyrics in Ish's inimitable style, ranging from vigorous praise to heartfelt prayer. I particularly liked "I'll Sing To You, I'll Bring To You", "Holy Spirit Flow" and "Father God Created The World". My favourite is "Praise God In This Great Congregation" - I could almost see the girls with the tambourines. It was a bonus to hear in conclusion my old favourite "Father God I Wonder" with a spirited new mix. All in all, this is good value for money.
