A delightful worship album from one of Britain's Vineyard musos. Chris wrote all the songs (save for one Robin Mark) and sings and plays guitar, while his wife Jennie offers some lead vocals. Jennie's voice has a clear, pure tone - catch it on the lilting, Celtic-tinged "Mercy And Love", while the arrangements, like on the attractive opener "Carried", are excellent. Only when the five musos try something rockier, like "You Are My King", does it sound thinly unconvincing. But elsewhere, this demonstrates again that there is much talent in the worship musicians ministering in Britain's churches.
