This is a further entirely instrumental collaboration from pianist Timberlake with synths and arrangements by Daniels. Like previous releases it combines a number of performances of well known worship songs with originals from Charles and two from John. The intention is to "inspire and uplift those who are going through difficult times". The calming soundscape includes well known pieces such as the opener "Purify My Heart" and a chilled "Be Bold, Be Strong". Lyrics are included for the six songs covered to enable "those of you who know them to sing along." I suspect though that most listeners would just wish to relax into the warm sounds as the known and unknown pieces weave seamlessly. Timberlake wrote a number of his pieces around the time of his father's death. As a further tribute to his father he includes an arrangement of a setting of "The Lord's Prayer" composed by Arthur Timberlake. An album which skilfully achieves its stated goal.
