I never cease to be pleasantly surprised at the quality of some of the grassroots music coming out of the UK churches. Recently I've enthused about Ichthus Pimlico and The Ark Centre in Weston-super-Mare, and this one from Mr Cooper is another to add to the list. From the lack of musician info in the sleevenotes, I'm guessing that he's a one-man band in the style of Mike Oldfield, although the instrumentation is expertly done, and the songs themselves are worshipful, scriptural and (in the case of the title track) prophetic. "King Of Kings, Majesty" will be known to Grapevine aficionados, as Chris Bowater sang it on the 1998 festival live worship album, and a bonus on this album is a Spanish version. All the tracks except one are Jarrod's own compositions, the exception being yet another version of "Be Thou My Vision"; the album was recorded at The Red Room in Malvern, Worcestershire, produced by Colin Owen (and what he doesn't know about making a good album for peanuts ain't worth knowing), and the end product has atmosphere and passion. Recommended.

I am fed spiritually by Jarrod's teaching on UCB radio - wish it was broadcast a bit earlier than midnight - and would like to know if Jarrod speaks at other venues in the UK as his exposition and interpretation of scripture is not available anywhere near here. I am looking for healing for myself and the gift of faith also to pray for others. Thank you, Jarrod!

I have been listening to Jarrod Cooper's CD "Days of Wonder" for a number of years and listening to the words of each song is praise and worship to our Lord. Unfortunately I have mislaid my copy of the CD and wonder if you could let me know how to purchase another copy. I have tried Amazon, but to no avail.
God bless you all.

Just wanted to say that the 'Days of Wonder' album is a great one, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to go deeper with God. I love the Spanish version of 'Kings of Kings, Majesty'. Quality track.
I am a member at Peterborough Community Church and remember when Jarrod Cooper came to the church a while ago to talk, and sing. Was really cool to hear him live and to see the passion he has for God.
So if Jarrod ever reads this please feel free to come to the new building at PCC. You're very much welcome. take care. Tom
