Well, I for one am glad to see worship that is culturally relevant really beginning to expand. A lot has been said about rave and rock worship for youth cultures of the USA and UK and while there is no doubt that these experiments have been used with great success, one can't help wonder if we continue to fragment our worshipping community rather than cement it. Liz Pass has used some great African music to bring a fine album of simple but effective praise and worship songs. I must admit that the opening track sounded a little too English for an African worship album but as soon as track two roared into action, those wonderful, vibrant African voices and rhythms had me right where they wanted me. You're gonna have to make the effort to send for this, which is a shame considering that this is miles better than most of the plethora of praise product pumped out in your local bookshop.

Hi, as a child growing up in Zimbabwe, we had this album on a cassette tape that has somehow disappeared with the various moves our family has made in the last ten years or so. Have always loved the worship on it and would also be so happy to find a copy of it again. Any advice on place of purchase would be much appreciated.
Stay blessed

Hi John,
I listened to Liz Pass in SA and am trying to get her music on CD. Do you have the CD details and where we can order this from?

I have the CD of Liz Pass and it is also burnt onto my PC at work. A really inspirational work of art. Although I am by no means a very religous person, I thoroughly enjoy the CD and wish that Ms. Pass would release more in a similar vein.
