Well, there must be a market for this kind of thing: this is a re-release of 1992's 'Kendrick Gold: The Collection'.  The album contains 13 good, competent arrangements of Kendrick's standards - "We Are Here To Praise You", "All Heaven Waits", "The Servant King", etc.  And they're played well by an orchestra of skilful musicians under the watchful eye of Robin Thompson-Clarke, Christopher Norton and Les Moir.  But there's no real passion in the arrangements and it's little more than Christian muzak, something to have playing in the background of your Alpha supper.  Slick, but sterile.

I do disagree with the review I had the tape for many years and enjoyed many hours of listening to it especially when in the car and now I too would like to buy it again on CD

I contacted Kingsway Music, the owner of the album and they suggested ebay or amazon. The cd is out of print and no longer available. :-(
