Paris-based Matt has been building a reputation for pioneering worship ministry and this is his first release with Integrity Music. The style is relaxed contemporary with layered pianos, synths, drums and percussion providing a backdrop through which the rich vocals to weave seamlessly. The songs are well written and arranged with input from the likes of Paul Baloche, Graham Kendrick and Michael Neale and flow beautifully as befitting songs written in the French language rather than translated from English which all the songs are except for the excellent cover of Keith Green's "O Lord You're Beautiful". A peaceful, worshipful album for anyone and an absolute must for those seeking contemporary French language worship.
