Five gentle songs of faith sung by a Staffordshire songsmith accompanied simply on his own acoustic guitar. Apparently the songs were all recorded in one take so not surprisingly Richard has considerable pitching problems and mic pop. And the songs? Pleasant enough contemplations of a God "Born In A Cradle Of Hay" or how "We See Him Now" offering us freedom. But in truth they sound like a thousand others. So there's no chance of seeing this pass beyond Richard's immediate circle of friends.
