Wow! What can I say? I hardly feel qualified to comment on the performance of the Emmy Award winning Symphony Orchestra Of Prague - but here goes! This is an originally fresh and unique recording, or should I say work of art, it is a collection of many of the well known songs of Geoff Bullock, arranged and freshly interpreted by the highly talented Paul Terracini. They are breathtakingly performed by the symphony Orchestra Of Prague, recorded in that city on Good Friday, Easter 1998. There are also two compositions featured by Paul Terracini, namely 'Rachel' and 'Carried By Grace'. If you fail to be moved by the amazingly stirring renditions of 'The Power Of Your Love' and 'This Kingdom' then you are obviously not breathing. The orchestra managed to lift my emotions, but also my spirit to a different level. In the words of Geoff Bullock, 'I pray that as you listen, you will catch a glimpse of the one that I have always written about. He is these songs.' Highly recommended.

I brought the symphony the day before yesterday and was simple blown away by it.

I have other music CD's featuring the Prague Symphony Orchestra, but to hear Shine Jesus Shine or others orchastrated was such a joy!

I rate this CD 8/10 !
