This release from the Kensington Temple crew represents a recent event that took place at Wembley Arena in front of over 5000 people in October last year. The worship here is led by music pastor Dave Wellington in conjunction with Joanne Marshall and Harry George and features what appears to be their in-house band fronted by their music director Anthony Marshall. The style of worship is primarily designed to uplift its audience and it is certainly upbeat but this unfortunately has not carried across as well onto recorded format. This is largely down to the song material and sound quality of the recording not being up to scratch thus failing to do the event its proper justice. The most enjoyable aspect of this release is the entrance of guest artists Comunidad Cristiana De Londres Worship Band giving a Spanish flavour to the proceedings on "Hosanna" and "Great Nation" but even they sound thin on account of the recording quality and poor post-event mixing. But it's not an amazing CD though I have no doubt that this was an amazing and Spirit-filled event.
