The usual well produced and well performed songs from Spring Harvest, where the children's worship leaders really know their audience. 'Kids' Praise 2005/6' is produced by Paul Field and has a good selection of songs (16 of them in all) from such masters of the genre as Jim Bailey, John Hardwick and Dave Godfrey, with three beautiful tracks from the pen of Judy MacKenzie Dunn. There's a good range of themes and styles - from the Chas'n'Dave stomp of "Fearfully And Wonderfully Made", through the jazzy cool of "Let The Sun Shine" and slow reflection of "Lost In Space" and "All I Know" to the rattling hillbilly of "I Love Ya". The album finishes with Paul Field's own version of Psalm 23 "Surrounded By His Love" as featured on last Christmas's Queen's Broadcast. The backing's good throughout and the kids sing as if they are enjoying themselves. You can't beat British kids' praise and this is a very good example.
