As you probably know, Mark Heard died about 18 months ago. If you have never heard Heard, this is an excellent introduction to this much missed muso. Mark was a multi instrumentalist record producer extraordinaire, who wrote lorry loads of material (some unreleased songs appear on this recording) - this offering gives many of his finest. Personal favourites are "House Of Broken Down Dreams" and his wonderful version of "I Know That My Redeemer Lives". I've got to admit that when Mark delivers the line, "He lives and I shall conquer death", the fact of the statement nearly made this reviewer's heart hit his chest...a powerful line slammed home by someone who now lives in the full knowledge of God's promise to believers. Garth Hewitt, Buddy and Julie Miller, The Choir, Rich Mullins and a whole host of CCM stars loved this man and his music... why don't you join the list?
