This compilation, recorded live at last year's Keswick Convention, aims to capture the best of the sung worship from the event, showcasing a variety of songs and hymns. With worship led by Peter Gunstone, Stuart Townend and Colin Webster, there is certainly a real diversity on offer here, mixing older hymns ("And Can It Be", "Great Is Thy Faithfulness") that have blessed the Church for years with some of the more contemporary tracks the church is learning today ("10,000 Reasons", "Here For You".) There is also room for some unusual tracks some may have never heard before. There are some unusual arrangements here and some tracks have a surprisingly intimate feel. This is best demonstrated in the songs led by Stuart Townend. The energy and enthusiasm of both bands and congregations is generally evident although an occasional song has a somewhat muddied mix.
