The worship band at the increasingly influential Christian City Church, Oxford Falls has worked hard to produce a first-rate and highly watchable live worship DVD. There are 12 tracks in the main feature from the hugely energetic rock praise album. "I Will Wait" to the peaceful "Glorious Redeemer". The musical styling falls somewhere between Vineyard and Hillsong and this is no bad thing at all. The bonding within the band is evident as the high musical quality remains through each song and the worship remains spontaneous and spirit-led. You may well think as I did "CDs are fine, but watching worship"? But I had my preconceptions dashed as the professional filming manages to combine some great close-ups of the band in full swing (great for the musicians among us) whilst not straying from the whole point of the worship. The bonus DVD has some good material, again of special interest to musicians as it goes into the song structures and technical points of the event. All in all a slickly produced package of modern worship.
