One firstly assumes that the CD by King's Kids is by the commendable organisation that runs under the auspices of Youth With A Mission but nothing on the inlay card confirms this. The second assumption is that this is a project by and for 'kids' which to me means 'pre-teens' and not teens. However, songs such as "Be Thou My Vision" and "O Breath Of Life" seem somewhat lofty concepts for young minds. If I was purchasing this I'd like to know whether this is truly a kids' project or a young teens project! The cover indicates the former and recording the latter! There is little child-like throughout except the cover. Paul Field produced and programmed the competent, almost sing-a-long ditties for the 30 or so participants in a Glasgow venue.
