One look at the sleeve with its promise of "worship music that provides a nurturing environment for baby's spirit and mind," my stomach immediately began to feel queasy. In the past I've had such painful encounters with tiny tots music, like the ghastly Cedarmont Kids series, that the very thought of another set of squeaky voiced children singing along to a cheap Casio-sounding synth is likely to make me hide behind the couch. But God of wonders indeed, this is pretty good! For a start the producer (Christopher Davis) has plumped for quality songs, with Brenton Brown's "Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing)", Chris Tomlin's "We Fall Down" and some well loved hymns. Then quality arrangements have been put together with elegant piano, real strings and not a hint of the dread Casio. Next, a chorus has been used consisting of children who can actually sing. And finally female session singers have been brought in to take the lead vocals, which though uncredited, are clearly among Nashville's finest. Maybe a bit saccharine-sweet for some, and the slow tempos throughout do eventually become sleep-inducing. But then, that's probably part of the concept.
