Reviewed by Tom Lennie

He's been for many years one of Britain's favourite worship leaders and this double-CD re-packaging offers two of Stuart's finest studio recordings, 'Lord Of Every Heart' (2002) and 'Monument To Mercy' (2006). Each album ably reveals both the depth and variety of Townend's lyrical abilities (unfortunately lyrics aren't provided in the sleevenotes, though other details are) and also the variety of his musical arrangements. We're treated to several of the classic hymns that he's penned, including "When Love Came Down", "The Power Of The Cross" and "Love Incarnate". There's also a number of chirpy pop songs, a good old rock'n'roll tune, a prayer-song and several piano-based ballads. Add to these some pleasant backing vocals and horn sections, along with excellent production from John Hartley and Mark Edwards on each album respectively. Together these discs comprise a fine double-showcase of this notable songsmith's output.

Product Description

Fusing together 2 CDs from Stuart Townend in one package.


Stuart Townend is a name that has already etched itself alongside the great hymn writers of yesteryear. How Deep The Father's Love, The King of Love, Beautiful Saviour and In Christ Alone have made sure of that. His album Lord Of Every Heart is a fusion of contemporary celebration, reflective adoration and hymn-like grandeur with songs that have resourced the church.

Monument To Mercy is a superb studio album, full of songs immersed in powerful theology, all underpinned with ear catching arrangements. Featuring co-writes with Kate Simmonds, Keith Getty and Pastor Terry Virgo, the album includes the hymn Oh To See The Dawn (The Power Of The Cross), a track which also features the FILMharmonic Orchestra of Prague.
