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.

Well, after taking a chance with "Isle Of Tides" and, bearing in mind I am not a religious person, I took a potentially bigger risk with a more overt religious-titled album - just because I like their sound!

I am not disappointed by what I hear musically, vocally and lyrically. I accept their religious message with open arms and without feeling as if I should become a (old) child of God. I like them simply because they make very fine music, beautifully sung by Sarah Lacy and excellently play by all. You can't beat that warm feeling that you get when you listen to great music played so well and sung so beautifully.

So, can we expect anything new from Eden's Bridge?
