Trinity have developed a reputation for being one of Holland's major Christian bands. This 2011 album, their first live project, was recorded at Flevo Festival's main stage on the closing night. Disc one opens with the energetic title track where the audience confirms their popularity on their own turf, followed with a "Melody" of choruses including "He Has Made Me Glad" sung in English. Despite the potential language barrier (lyrics are translated on their web site), it is not difficult to get involved! There are some real gems on disc one, "4x4" is a story song asking what we can add to this world, "Este Momento" is a beautiful ballad and their rendition of "Amazing Grace" is pure worship! If you are a fan of Salvador or Burlap To Cashmere, you will enjoy the first disc. Disc two however, is rather different. Billed as more intimate and acoustic, I found the CD failed to keep my attention and the frequent inclusion of panpipes and flutes (although actually present on both discs) did become irritating at times. Also, I was a little disappointed at the short length of the second disc (only 36 minutes), disc one is 53 minutes approx. Whatever my misgivings, it is clear from this project, however, that Trinity are an extremely talented bunch.
