This album is the latest in a series released to help the Prospects Christian charity which works with people with learning difficulties. The opening tracks on this set, "Hallelujah Praise The Lord" and "Send Your Light", have an engaging simplicity while others enable those whose language is not primarily English to participate. Highlights include the inviting "Jewel In A Crown", the folk-like "I Will Walk With You Jesus" both sung beautifully by Debbie Starling, the lively "Praise God For He Is Mighty" (vocals by Bruce Pont) and the semi-reggae beat of "Running The Race" sung by Tony Phelps-Jones. I did feel, however, that there was an over emphasis on slower songs. That said, I applaud what has been achieved here.
