Masterminded by Rob Frost, this offering has been written, arranged and produced by Paul Field. 'Hopes And Dreams' is billed as a new Christian musical to celebrate the forthcoming millenium which it does in progressive style. It has proven to be the most successful Christian musical to hit the British Church for many a long year. This set features three additional songs to Paul's from the ever-popular Graham Kendrick and if that wasn't enough, there's a finale featuring the "Lord's Prayer" sung by Sir Cliff Richard. The backing is skilfully programmed by Paul Field with keyboards and acoustic guitars. He also is featured in a four-piece vocal group. Other featured instruments include sax, flute and recorder by Mike Haughton, peddle steel and electric guitars by Melvyn Duffy and, most unusual of all, the bagpipes by Pipe Major Jess Taylor. Tf you're looking for a keepsake of a highly successful musical or want to investigate what the fuss was about, investigate this album.

Hi, I was part of this musical at a local church some years ago and love to perform it again, as an out reach. the one we did had backing of stars etc. Is there any chance of getting a dvd copy and permit-ion to perform it. It was a most inspiring musical.
