This box set comprises three early recordings from Paul Wilbur from the years 1995, '98 and '99; the first being in DVD rather than CD format. Paul Wilbur broke new ground in Messianic worship with the release of his stunning live recording 'Shalom Jerusalem' in 1995. Though rooted in Hebraic music forms, the album had a professional and wonderfully contemporary feel; it combined moments of exuberant praise with times of intense passion, and the whole was woven seamlessly together to create a unique worship experience, of which Wilbur could later say "I was born for this project." I loved it, and still do. Recorded live in Jerusalem amidst nearly 3,000 believers, the event featured, along with Paul's band, a full choir, banner-carriers and a team of dancers, and all of this is captured on the beautiful 75-minute long DVD part of this trilogy. 'Jerusalem Arise', recorded live three years later from the same location, is more of the same, but I found the songs to be decidedly less memorable and impacting. Then there's 'Adonai', which, although generally credited to Wilbur, contains only one song sung by him. Other contributors include Karen Davis, Barry and Batya Segal and Daniel Kopp. This latter album provides a good cross section of Messianic worship and many of the choruses are sung in Hebrew. It would appear that this 3-disc set is aimed at music lovers who have heard some of Wilbur's more recent output (eg 'Lion Of Judah', 'The Watchman'), but have not yet connected with his earlier material. If so, then this is for you.
