This album, produced by Brian Doerkson, stands above the usual offerings put out by Vineyard Music.  It is unique in several ways: for one, it is the first Vineyard album produced in the UK and contains songs written by various worship leaders within the Vineyard movement in the UK.  (Ironically, Doerkson himself is not from the UK but has moved to London from Canada.)  The songs reflect a variety of musical styles ranging from an upbeat pop/Matt Redman style ("Beautiful God") to a folk/Celtic influence ("A Place In The Hills").  Although it was recorded live in London, the overall effect of the album is not that of a live worship gathering, which considering the diversity of the songs, I think is a wise move.  Musically, this album is tight; Doerkson has pulled an excellent mix of musicians from different churches for this project which should prove to be a landmark album in putting British Vineyard music on the map.

Product Description
When Vineyard Music UK embarked on its first ever worship recording in 1998, little did it know that the title song Come Now Is The Time To Worship would become one of the best known worship songs in today's modern church. Winner of the best worship album of 1998 Christian Booksellers Award in the UK, Come Now Is The Time went on to be a best selling album. Originally released in the USA under Vineyard Music's Winds of Worship series, we're now offering it to you in its original packaging.

Os cds da Vineyard Music são uma benção, indiscutivelmente, e por isso mesmo são regravados na língua portuguesa, como o `Vem, esta é a hora ´. Gostei muito desse artigo, ouvi músicas já por mim conhecidas, a faixa 1 e 2 e também as outras que ainda não conhecia. È um ótimo presente para evangelizar.
