Different churches have different ways of setting the scene for worship. Occasionally it is silence, with others it is the noisy conversation of fellowship, whilst the music a bride enters a church to is known to many. So imagine what it would be like to enter a church that was quiet apart from the peaceful playing of a grand piano elegantly played by Tolu Okeowo, performing Psalms and worship songs that you recognise but don't quite know all the words to. This is an advantage, as if you tried to sing along, you would miss the Godly peace of the music. The tracks include "As The Deer", "I Worship You Almighty God" and "I Stand In Awe Of You". The peaceful tempo on all the tracks allows a listener to leave the troubles of the world at the door and enter into the ambience of praise. This is meditative instrumental music well suited to private devotions to keep away worldly distractions and keep the mind focused on the Cross. There is also a short extract about true worship in the sleeve notes from Pastor Efueye of London's House On The Rock Church.
