This is the second release by Kingsway in a symphonic trilogy. Paul Terracini has arranged all the hymns and songs on this album which sets out to provide the listener with a majestic, moving and passionate portrait of Jesus. So, to the music and performance. Terracini's interpretation of classic hymns such as "Thine Be The Glory" "The King Of Love My Shepherd Is" and "All Hail The Power Of Jesus' Name" is at times inventive with strong and powerful counterpoint constantly attracting the ear and moving the music on with energy. Once or twice the bridge passages seemed a little unbalanced on the dynamics front and perhaps too incidental in style to take us from one song to the next smoothly, The Emmy Award winning orchestra play with technical accuracy and brilliance most of the time but often lacked a lyrical quality when needed.
