I'm confused. Despite a front cover declaring these as part of the iWorship series (that pioneering set which put visuals and lyrics to aid in the worship process) this is in reality simply a box containing three old albums, 2003's 'Satisfy' by Kathryn Scott, 2004's 'Today' by Canada's Brian Doerksen and 2006's 'A Greater Song' by Paul Baloche. Leaving aside the problems caused by slopping and misleading packaging, what about the music contained herein. Ireland's Kathryn Scott is in fine form on her set, produced by Brian Doerksen and Philip Janz. Subtle, understated Celtic-tinged worship. My Doerksen himself was recorded at a huge event in Abbotsford, British Columbia, and a wide variety of worship expressions that include a 75-voice community choir, a children's choir, a 12-piece orchestra and the Mennonite Jazz Committee. Modern anthems and classic hymns are woven together over 75 minutes, and the album is topped and tailed by the now classic "Today (As For Me And My House)". On his album America's Paul Baloche presents a number of collaborations with other well known worship writers and leaders such as Brenton Brown, Graham Kendrick and Don Moen. There is of course no particular connection between the three albums though the worship is never less than stirring.
