I'm told that US-based Terry Macalmon is quite popular in some circles, promoting an "easy listening" approach to worship which places him firmly outside any cutting edge developments in the field; Tim Hughes, he ain't. This release was recorded at the triumphantly-named World Prayer Center in Colorado, where Terry regularly leads "noon worship sessions". Refreshingly, he is a keyboard player, so his style differs from the usual sound of a solo worshipper leading on guitar, but Terry does draw unnecessary attention to himself through his use of elaborate flourishes and runs. Also, he has chosen to back many of his songs with an unconvincing synthesized orchestra, which to these ears gets in the way of any spontaneity or intimacy. Nine tracks are showcased in this way, mostly his own songs but also included are "What A Friend I've Found" and Smitty's "Agnus Dei". Sadly the difference in quality between these and Terry's tunes is stark and all in all 'Live Worship.' was a disappointing experience for this listener. However, his ministry will no doubt be enjoyed by those who've been blessed by his ministry on God TV.

I have to say that the cd of Terry macalmon 'live worship from the world prayer centre is outstanding!! I loaned mine to a friend and it got lost so i am ordering another as i love it so much. As i worship along with this cd i am taken into the tangible presence of God and the peace and joy are amazing. This is every single time i use this cd to worship. I cannot reccommend it highly enough, it is deeply moving in fact i was playing it in my car, and as i came onto my drive i sat not wanting to turn it off. A complete stranger came onto my drive who said he did'nt even believe in God but hearing my music he was so moved that he just had to get the cd for himself, now that is..poweful
