Reviewed by Steve Amadeo

Peniel Choir is described as an integral part of the worship and outreach of Peniel Pentecostal Church, Brentwood and as such is not a commercial venture. Boasting around 70 singers aged 12 to 60 (from every continent on the planet!) the choir has been in existence for about two years. The songs are generally simple in style, although there are some interesting uses of calypso and reggae. The music was described by choir conductor, Sheila Mclntyre, as "American Gospel", but it is hard to categorise it too tightly because of the variety of songs. The music ranges from triumphant full choir singing to quiet solos. It is diverse, great encouragement music, and great fun. As one who listens to worship albums only very rarely, I have to say that I did enjoy this one. It has a song for every mood and for everybody; it can be used for personal enjoyment/worship and also for outreach as the messages in the songs are easy to hear. As an independent church venture the quality of the recording impressed me (despite the coughs of some members of the audience/congregation at inappropriate times!). Buy and enjoy.

Do enquire at Trinity Church, Brentwood. I got mine there many years ago, but they're re-releasing them.
