Reviewed by Pauline Cooke

Eight homegrown praise and worship songs with a light, acoustic feel. If you like a heavier rock riff, you may not enjoy this. However, those who prefer a more meditative, unplugged, feel should have a good time, particularly on "Jesus, Saviour" with its harp backing. "Carried" also has an unhurried lilting verse contrasting with a strong chorus. The lyrics: fairly simple, heartfelt love songs to Jesus. "Mercy And Love", sung by Jennie Orange, would not be out of place sung solo at communion. Both Chris and Jennie have good melodic voices which duet well on "Nothing But Love" and "Safe Within These Arms". I will certainly pick out this CD when in need of some inspired rest and relaxation.

Is this the Chris Orange that used to live and play in Christchurch, New Zealand...? If so, I'd like to contact him.
