Reviewed by Mark Lawrence

American songwriter/composer Terry MacAlmon is well known by viewers of Christian TV for his worship albums of original and contemporary songs arranged classically. His latest offering hardly strays into new territory. Granted, all the songs here are rendered instrumentally with Terry on the piano accompanied by a lush orchestra. But it seldom catches fire. Containing mainly original songs penned by Terry himself, the theme, not surprisingly given the album title, is God's Glory and Holiness (only one song doesn't mention the words holy or glory somewhere in the lyrics!). Presumably the idea of printing the lyrics on the inlay to an instrumental album is not meant to be ironic but meant to be an aid for transferring these songs in to a corporate worship setting: clever! Overall this is a well produced album, containing well rehearsed orchestral versions of Terry's songs.
