The annual Keswick praise recording covering the event in 2019 features Colin Webster (week one), EMU Music (week two) and Olly Knight from the third week. As on previous releases, Keswick leans towards the traditional, featuring hymns such as "How Great Thou Art" and "O For A Closer Walk With God" adding a more modern emphasis. There are many beautiful moments here including the more current "The Longing Of My Soul" and the bonus track featuring just the congregation singing acapella "And Can It Be". This last song is particularly moving as it was the final song of the final evening held at Skiddaw Street. Next year it moves to the former Pencil Factory site in Keswick. This collection serves as a strong reminder to all the attendees of this well-established event and its unique place in the UK Christian calendar.
