Not to be confused with the Keith Routledge album of the same title, you'll in fact have to search the inlay card long and hard to discover that the pianist on this album is Tom Keene. More evident on the sleeve is that it's in the 'Classical Colours' series so presumably Classical Praise Violin et al will follow shortly. And the music? Superbly recorded versions of well known choruses played fluidly by Mr Keene on the concert grande in a style which is indeed more 'classical' in feel than Mr Routledge's work. Standouts are the lovely "Praise You Father/Jesus Name Above All Names" medley and the opener "You Are My Hiding Place". I found it soothing and useful for background use or an aid in devotions.
