This is the fourth collaboration between Timberlake and Daniels, who originally collaborated in 2001 using the principle of the latter adding orchestral arrangements to the piano tracks of the former; Timberlake lives in Hampshire and Daniels is now in the United States, so this collection was put together by way of transatlantic electronic links. The offering of 17 tracks (giving 62 minutes of music) comprises a combination of well known ballads, hymns and worship songs and some original material from the pair of them. The album title conveys the overriding theme they have strived for, with the intention being that listening to it is "an opportunity to reflect on the fact that our lives richly encompass all different aspects of everything and everybody". The variety of core material is impressive, all the tracks work well and the self-penned ones easily hold their own. An interesting, entertaining and ultimately soothing listen.

A Time for all Things is an inspirational collection of their own compositions, hymns, worship songs and well-known ballads.
Their unique style, which has won critical acclaim, brings something of God’s peace to the hearts and minds of ordinary people. Their music is played regularly on Radio 2’s Good Morning Sunday with Aled Jones.
It is hoped that this new compilation, where they record for the first time their arrangements of popular ballads alongside religious pieces, will appeal to those of all faiths and none; and that in these troubled times, where many are experiencing hardship, their music may provide an encouragement for the listener to reflect and to deepen their relationship with God.
