This fascinating Irish ensemble have been taking worship music into some exciting new directions. I didn't get to hear Part I of the 'Organic Family Hymnal' and Part II of these independently released EPs is now longer available as the collective have been signed to Kingsway and have rerecorded their songs for a full length album. But I couldn't let this release go without comment. The opening track "Exalt" has already been named by me as one of the best cuts of 2009 and with its fiery Celtic soul vocal and haunting cello work it remains a song which stirs me to worship every time I hear it. Almost as good are the songs "Above Everything Else" and "You Are Love". Groundbreaking stuff on a release which will surely become a valuable collectors item.
