Goodall and Morris may be the best known of this musical trio, each with solo recordings to his name, but all three have featured as session/backing vocalists on loads of projects over the years, such as The Mandate and Spring Harvest studio output. This is a collection of their favourite modern worship songs (some of my favourites too!). Acoustic in format and beautifully sung, the set includes a couple of Redman tunes along with one's from the likes of Oakley, Richards, Mark and Townend. The three singers are also writers so it's a pity we don't hear more from their own songbooks (we get two from Stuart's pen and one from David). The guys seem to remain fairly 'hidden' (presumably intentional) - no photos, scant biog info, little vocal distinction between the three. This is extremely pleasant listening though, both music and profound lyrics being deeply inspiring. Not to be overlooked.
