Bert Petkau is a Canadian singer/songwriter from British Columbia, and he's given us an interesting batch of pop/rock material directed Godwards, with themes ranging from worship ('Let Your Glory Fall', 'Your Wonders'), and praise ('Never Ending Love') to faith and trust ('I Believe'), and seeking blessing ('I Can Feel You', 'More Of You'). Nothing strikingly out of the ordinary, but having said that, the musicianship and production is well up to scratch, and Bert has a great voice with a hint of Ian White in his delivery. Not at all bad.

It's well on from 1999 but I recently came across this CD through a friend who'd met him while on an overseas trip, and played it over and over. The songs are infused with hope, and much appreciated.
