Hmmm, this is difficult to review. It's another instrumental album in the 'Worship Him On The..." series (I'm looking forward to "Worship Him On The Spoons") and what you get are 12 choruses and four original instrumental pieces beautifully performed with Rachel Davies on the harp. Thankfully it's not just the harp - the familiar strum-de-strum-strum sound tends to grate with me after a while - but Ms Davies skilfully weaves and picks her instrument around flutes, guitars, oboes, cellos and keyboards. On the plus side it is (to my ears) musically faultless and sounds, erm, lovely and peaceful and relaxing. Oh, and full lyrics are included. On the negative side the 16 tracks squeeze onto 45 minutes of CD and the most recent chorus is "Overwhelmed By Love" by Noel Richards. The rest are classics which have been heard many times before: "Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord", "Jesus, Name Above All Names", 'The Servant King", etc. If you like the sound of the harp you may want to investigate.
