Judging from the amount of releases coming through the Church currently seems to have an insatiable desire for "soaking" albums. Alberto is the worship leader/pastor of Grace Centre Church, Franklin, Tennessee and has already made over 12 albums of this type of ambient improvisational music. He plays keyboard and occasionally vocalises and here is joined by acoustic guitar, cello, violin and mandolin. Rivera refers to the effect as "surfing of the soundscapes of Heaven" and the mood produced is truly beautiful and ethereal. The 11 tracks all have general titles like "Rebirth" and "Breath Of Life" and many of them segue into one another. When I look for some music suitable to accompany meditation or prayer, this is the album I will go for.
