Graham Kendrick needs no introduction. Bet you didn’t know I went to the same college! Rather than being for congregational use, these songs are for listening to, for encouragement and inspiration - "Do Something Beautiful". That said, the songbook IS available. Kendrick’s voice is pleasant, perhaps nothing special, more an "Everyman". You can hear every syllable perfectly, vital when the message matters. Great instrumentation too; a special mention for the Ichthus Choir, many of the other musicians are well known names anyway, like duetters Darlene Zschech and Tim Hughes. By the second listen, this album was seriously growing on me. There are changes of tempo and mood, foot tapping or boogie one track, meditative the next. Poetically, there’s nothing to match "Hands that flung stars into space" but the whole world needs to listen to "Arise - a Prayer for Peace" right now.
