Cry Freedom was New Wine's 2007 set of conferences held in both the North and the South of England, and this is the CD that captures some of the worship and atmosphere at those events. As it was for last year, this is a double disc album containing 22 tracks, and nine different worship leaders such is the size and diversity of the events as New Wine continues to grow. Well known worship leders such as Canada's Brian Doerksen, England's Martin Layzell and Ireland's Eoghan Heaslip, as well as worship teams from Trent Vineyard and Trinity Cheltenham are all present. There is a great mix of songs, from Chris Tomlin's "Awesome Is The Lord Most High", Brian Doerksen's "I Lift My Eyes Up" and "Worthy, You Are Worthy" by Matt Redman, lead on this occasion by Geraldine Latty. And there are also some excellent contemporary choices, such as "Hosanna" by the New Zealand artist Brooke Fraser and "Sweetly Broken" penned by Anaheim Vineyard man Jeremy Riddle. This release is very well recorded and produced by Paul Burton and retains the live atmosphere. For anyone wanting to relive the worship from these seminal conferences this does the job nicely.
