David Lyle Morris has been a force behind the scenes in worship ministry for some time. With this CD he steps forward into the limelight, with a selection of his own tunes and others from such as Dave Bilborough and Robin Mark, while his band includes the likes of Caroline Bonnett on keyboards. The album manages to blend a number of styles, both ancient and modern. The opening up tempo "The People Who Walk In Darkness" has a new country feel to it, while another of Morris' compositions, the catchy "Love, Joy, Peace" has something of a Caribbean flavour. "Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah" is given a suitable Celtic feel, while the album comes to a fine crescendo with "Jesus, All For Jesus". For me though the standout track is the balladic "All The Way My Saviour Leads Me". The album was recorded live at Ichthus in South London. The production is very high quality, capturing perfectly the sense of live worship, while still maintaining a rare clarity.
