Noel, a member of the Elim Church, Huddersfield, endeavours to express something of the majesty and enormity of God with towering, classically-influenced synthesiser instrumentals. Various friends and church members offer some recitations and Julie Brooke contributes three vocals. Unfortunately, the limitations of the keyboard voicings chosen pull against Noel's obvious keyboard ability and one or two passages lurch into cheesy musical melodrama. A shame.
