Geraldine is best known for her work at the FocusFest women's worship conference, which takes place each summer in Belfast, and the live worship albums released by Kingsway have been popular. This particular CD under review has come to me as a prerelease white label copy, so I've no information as to who's taking part, although it is a studio album rather than a live recording. Some of the material is familiar - Robin Mark's "Take Us To The River" is here, and the title track is the well known setting of the Prayer of St Francis - but others are not so familiar and all the tracks benefit from Geraldine's warm vocal style. In fact, I think that she comes over better in the studio than live in the auditorium. I've been a tad disappointed with the last two FocusFest albums - too many inferior covers - but this one shows her true colours.
