This album aims to encourage the whole church family to worship together, with "a variety of styles and tastes" - sounds good to me! It is certainly musically entertaining (have a listen to the funky track "Every Minute Of Every Day") and well produced, with a good mixture of bluesy guitar work and drums, even some good harmonica in there. Styles range from soul and pop to reggae and country and vocally, there is a children's vocal group who sound excellent: it's so good to hear children singing about being "blameless and pure" and "without fault". Rich has an effective voice, although sometimes it reminds me of play school when he says rather than sings some songs. Some of the songs sound a bit too babyish for "all are congregational use , but 'A Rich Tapestry' still is an uplifting piece of work, if not able to completely bridge the gap in worship between kids and adults.
