"In Christ Alone" co-writer Keith Getty is behind this collection of 12 worshipful songs which has, as the "Irish" in the title hints, quite a few folk elements and influences strewn throughout. And these can be heard in songs that, in some cases, would not be out of place on albums that have made big impacts in the charts over the past 10 years. "Across The Lands" plays on some strong themes reminiscent of Celtic band Clannad, while "Your Glory Be Ever Known" and "Every Promise" are tracks that would not sound out of place on an album by pop-folksters The Corrs. This all results in an interesting collection of contemporary music that will prove useful to churches and also be enjoyable at home.
