The sleeve notes give the impression that this album is some sort of show/musical celebration. Indeed it fits very much into a kind of Lloyd Webber 'Aspects of Love' style presentation at times - strong lead vocals, piano solos. The album is at its best when these are given centre stage rather than the full blown choral bit. That is except for the title track and finale to the set -here Roger Mayor combines belting lead vocals by Sarah Delight with Foundation Singers And Orchestra to well and truly bring the house. Elsewhere there are some memorable performances, notably from Roger himself on 'So Many Times' where he pours out his heart in confession. In terms of hummability I'm not so sure that it's a winner. I don't think there's anything here that would make its way onto a Mission Praise 3. But of course that's not what it's all about. As a perfor­mance piece you'd have to see 'No Greater God' it as well as hear it I guess
