Word's 'Streams' project off the back of the successful publishing venture fills me with some concerns. There are some interesting duets which had me chomping at the bit to check out and the prospect of hearing archetypical harmonising CCMers 4Him teaming up Yes frontman Jon Anderson must be one of the strangest collaborations in the history of Christian music! The choice of the Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush classic 'Don't Give Up' for Maire Brennan and Michael McDonald to coo together is mysterious but executed with aplomb. And what about Delirious! and Amy Grant together for a cover of the apt 'Find Me In The River'? It feels like a true emotional moment rather than just a polished performance even though Amy and the D:Boys never set foot in the same studio! The addition of some symphonic pieces from the Irish Film Orchestra is a nice touch and gives atmosphere. The inclusion of Sixpence also gives this a delicate vibe and fans of Jaci Velasquez and Burlap To Cashmere will want to hear their contributions. Not quite a classic but much to enjoy!
