Although the Singers are based in Coventry Cathedral this is not a religious recording: only five of the 20 tracks have any Christian content. This is the Singers' fifth album and is a showpiece for some of their concert "party pieces" and is all good, clean fun. Fine Arts Brass Ensemble perform five musical interludes, such as Sousa's "Liberty Bell" (as per Monty Python). A highlight for this reviewer is a spine-tingling "Over The Rainbow", sung acapella, and the five traditional spirituals are worth hearing. So a nice concert souvenir but not a vital addition to a collection of Christian music.
