The Celtic feel is the overriding impression here, from the choice of songs, opening with "Peace To You" sung by Lucy Britten, to the easy rhythm of one vocal track, one instrumental, that repeats throughout; to the haunting, imaginatively-written intros featuring a whole bagful of fiddles, uillean pipes, flutes and whistles, all played by familiar and respected names. On the other hand, there are touches of bland here - which, to be fair to Alliance, is the Achilles heel of all these worship compilations. But on the whole, this is melodic and charming, and does the featured songs and hymns proud.
