The worship was recorded at First Baptist Church, Florida, and is led by Don Moen, backed by a team of 15 vocalists and five musicians, plus the church orchestra. Don Moen is, of course, a fine worship composer though some of the arrangements here have somewhat naff separate men/women sections. Nevertheless, this makes them easy to remember and sing along to and it is good to be reminded of who God is and what we believe. The songs are generally lively, the highlight for me being "God Is Here", in which the female vocalist sounds spontaneous and creative and the music quite funky. "We've Come To Bless Your Name" has a nice Latin-American edge to it and the tracks are interspersed with some beautiful saxophone ("My Love And My Light") and flute ("Because We Believe"). One feels there is a vast amount of untapped potential, especially among the singers. In a nutshell, 'Let Your Glory Fall' makes for an uplifting but not a particularly creative listening experience, despite all the musical talent on offer.
