STYLE: Celtic RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 5244-4935 LABEL: Straightway SSD 0181 FORMAT: CD Album
Reviewed by Trevor Kirk
This album features songs such us Rich Mullins "Awesome God", taken very slowly and featuring not only the frisson-inducing low whistle and Uillean pipes of Troy Donockley, but also a very thoughtful vocal by Sarah). Daniel Iverson's "Spirit Of The Living God" and Twila Paris' "Lamb Of God" and "He Is Exalted". All done in exemplary Celtic style. The album closes with the old favourite "Be Thou My Vision", again taken very slowly with some exotic percussion effects from Terl Bryant. Overall, I could say that Eden's Bridge are Iona Unplugged; having Iona personnel on board obviously helps, but Sarah, Richard and David need no help when it comes to songwriting and the Celtifying of some old favourite worship songs works a treat. Beautiful music, beautifully sung and played; go buy and get blessed.
