First impressions weren't favourable when I spotted that the title of this CD was mis-spelt: "Steps To The Trone", it said - eh oh! On playing the thing, I discovered a dozen gentle worship choruses sung in both English and Portugese to a single acoustic guitar. The story of how Elizabeth ended up as a musicianary in Rio De Janeiro, after a fairly ordinary upbringing in Northampton, is recounted in the sleevenotes; suffice to say that she ministers to the bodily needs of the poor and needy of South America during the week, and their spiritual needs through music at the weekend. Her style owes nothing whatsoever to the big bad world of CCM; for what it is, a totally basic voice and guitar thing, this CD is not bad, if a little old-fashioned. Material is from the repertoires of Vinesong, The Vineyard, Hosanna and elsewhere, so if you like your music worshipful and restful, this might appeal. And some of the proceeds will go to the work of the House of Mary and Martha rescuing children in Rio.

old fashioned doesnt matter, when this young woman ministers adoration, the Holy Spirit uses her
tremenously, to heal spiritualy and physicaly, The Bible tells us, "The Father is looking for a people to worship him in Spirit and truth"Thankyou Elizabeth Kay.
