Chris Rolinson, Joanne Boyce and Mike Stanley are spearheading a mini-revolution in Britain's Catholic church bringing contemporary Christian music into a liturgical tradition which in the past has been slow to absorb new music forms. Some of the fruits of their efforts are caught on this CD and very easy on the ear it is too. "Magnificat" features a deliciously fluid lead vocal from Joanne while the title song with lead by Mike Stanley is a truly moving contemplation on a world without Christ. Throughout the arrangements are artfully blended to bring out the worship quality of the material with Chris Rolinson's classy keys underpinning a set of quality songs. Deserving of wide exposure and let's hope some of these lovely songs can break through Protestant insularity.

I had this album (!) on cassette tape many many years ago when I saw them perform at Alton Castle in Stoke on Trent. I would absolutely love to own it again - any idea at all where I could get a copy? Tried all the usual - amazon, ebay, googling etc
Thanks, and God Bless x
