Reviewed by Paul Poulton

It's a great idea for a musical, ten songs based on Psalm 19, "The Heavens declare and the skies proclaim". It forces us to look at the universe around us, makes us forget all about our busy lives and helps us to look, and listen! What has creation got to say to us? The songs expound the meaning. Composed by Michael W Smith and Tom Howard along with Gloria and even Bill writes a couple of tunes. If your church worship group attempts it there will need to be a couple of people with some musical muscle to simplify the harder parts and to let the guitarist know which chords can be skipped, because there are plenty of them. The narration is American, which means words like 'quit' could be changed to 'stop'. The feel of the music is American, too, with plenty of modulation. But don't let that put you off, musicals are great for bringing out hidden talents in a church.

Maranatha Music is very inspiring. It builds me up and nourrishes my spiritual life. One can't just resist it.

Kindly advise how I can acquire one of your albums I lost about a year ago and have failed to find it in any of the shops - 'Declare His Glory' containing a song 'What are the words...what are they saying'.
