This is Terry MacAlmon's second worship DVD project which sees a theatre full of 60-somethings soaking in the presence of God as MacAlmon conducts worship as part of a festival in Pikes Peak. Singing some of his own compositions and songs from other worship leaders including the beautiful chorus "Alleluia", "Prepare The Way" by Jared Anderson and two of his own favourites "All The Glory" and "We Glorify The Lamb", this is just the sort of smooth, mellow worship music you expect Terry MacAlmon to deliver. What does seem strange about the DVD is the opening sequence of classical music and editing that puts MacAlmon in a bright white light to create the uncomfortable illusion that the congregation are worshipping him. Apparently MacAlmon's worship has been played whilst miraculous things have taken place in Tajikistan recently and certainly he has built up a wide following amongst believers who have attended huge praise and preaching mega events. But judging by this DVD Terry's spontaneous live worship doesn't easily translate to the small screen.
