As regular visitors to Spring Harvest will know, prior to the event each Easter an album is released of studio recordings featuring new or fairly new renditions of songs intended to be sung at the Big Top gatherings. This year's set, produced by always-reliable Paul Burton, has some excellent vocalists including Cathy Burton, Quinton Delport, Sarah Bird and Doug Walker and with songs emanating from Matt Redman, Hillsong Worship, Pete James and others this has to be a reasonably attractive package. "Sound Of Adoration" has a really good rhythm track and is easy to sing along to; "Holy Ground" has more of an electronic feel which might be a bit of tricky for a church to replicate but here brings out the appeal of the song; while "Build My Life", already being sung in my church, works really well as an acoustic number and as a prayer in coming close to Jesus. Overall, this is an effective way of introducing some good modern worship songs to churches who've not encountered the original versions.
