The producers are familiar enough names (Don Moen, Tom Brooks and Jeff Hamlin), the titles are all old favourites ("Amazing Grace", "Amazing Love", "Great Is Your Mercy") but the style is totally predictable and highly unoriginal - nice schmaltzy orchestra, lots of tinkly Richard Clayderman-style piano and a liberal helping of pan pipes. At the end of the day this sounds just like the sort of piped in music that you get in hotel foyers or used to get in supermarkets before the supermarket chains wised up to the fact that it drives people insane instead of making them feel more relaxed. Be honest, do we really actually need yet another pan pipe version of "Amazing Grace"? I think not!
