THE most popular contemporary music ministry in Britain's Catholic Church, Mike Stanley and Jo Boyce, are currently recording a studio album with producer Craig McLeish, who has previously worked with such acts as Why?, and featuring top UK musicians such as Terl Bryant. The album, working title 'First Light Dawning', will be released by CJM Music on 26th April.
