The Keswick Convention is famed for its teaching/preaching rather than its times of worship, which tend to lag a little behind both in terms of repertoire and musical approach events like Spring Harvest. Here the previous formula of well-known hymns "All Creatures Of Our God And King" and "Love Divine" are both featured. In 2018, Colin Webster and Phil Moore returned to lead worship and presented new songs "When The Word Of God" and the stirring "See Jesus Stripped Of Majesty", these adding to the collection. Musically, there is nothing unexpected here, but it is beautifully recorded and produced, leaving a lasting memory for those who attended.

The Keswick Convention is renowned for great teaching but also for a depth of worship that is rooted in theological truth and Christ discipleship.
This year's album is no exception. It contains stirring versions of well-known hymns ‘All Creatures Of Our God And King’, ‘Love Divine’ and ‘I Cannot Tell’ as well as contemporary classics including the Getty penned ‘Facing A Task Unfinished’ and the Getty/Townend collaboration ‘Hear The Call Of The Kingdom’ . Alongside these, ‘Sent’ includes new songs by Keswick returning worship leaders Colin Webster and Phil Moore, ‘See Jesus Stripped Of Majesty’ and ‘When The Word Of God’, both of which went down really well with those attending. EMU Music deliver some lovely moments with ‘Won My Heart’ and ‘This Life I Live’ and the excellent Stuart Townend contributes newly written ‘Christ Be With Me’ and ‘How Good It Is To Sing’, capturing the poetic quality and heartfelt worship expression he is known for.
Altogether an excellent collection of songs to focus your faith and encourage your heart.
