Having seen this lot on GOD Digital before, I know that Morning Star are one of the most energetic worship leading bands around. This set was recorded at 2001's GOD Digital Braveheart Conference at Edinburgh's Meadowbank Stadium, and if there were any doubt about its location, the CD opens with a burst of "Scotland The Brave" on pseudo-bagpipes. In truth, this is more performance than congregational worship, since the songs are way too complex for your average worshipper in the street, but the crowd seem quite happy to clap and hoot along with gusto as some highly accomplished fiddling gives the proceedings an authentically Celtic flavour. I would have to say though that this kind of fare is fairly selective in its appeal and although I wouldn't for a minute want to doubt the heart behind this, and the quality of musicianship on display, I was left feeling somewhat neutral about 'Braveheart'. Maybe you just had to be there.
