120 years on Keswick Praise has maintained its traditional slant, with a growing hint of absorbing musical changes and adapting to contemporary issues. Thus, this is a good mixture of evergreens such as "Amazing Grace", "O For A Closer Walk" and "Fill Thou My Life" and some Phil Lawson-Johnston, Marilyn Baker and Kendrick. Keswick worship leaders Geoff Baker and Roger Mayor contribute their own songs and arrangements and the mood of the album is one of maturity and meaning. As is so often the case with this sort of recording, it must be said again that the value is largely for those wanting to re-live their attendance. Otherwise, why would anyone want yet another version of "The Servant King", "Jesus, Name Above All Names" and "Be Still, For The Presence Of The Lord"? Well recorded, nice to hear something a bit more reserved.
