Music of finesse and depth from the cream of Salvation Army singers and musicians. Whether or not you enjoy this particular brand of traditional music, you have to appreciate the quality and attention to detail of all that these people do. Various bands and choirs contribute to the project. The Sunbury Junior Singers make a delightful contribution with their four tracks, the International Staff Songsters have a rich, warm sound and as you might expect the International Staff Band indulge in some wonderful shading and controlled power. 30 tracks here and my only complaint is that the programme is too crowded, allowing only short versions of the items. In the case of beauties like "The Day Thou Gavest" it's a crying shame, and pointless. Otherwise this is a commendable recording.
