The album follows a well trodden path of well known worship songs given instrumental renditions, in this case on piano. Also, again sticking to a rather silly Christian marketplace tradition, the front sleeve doesn't indicate any artist and it's only by trawling through the few details there are that we learn that the piano player is Mark Pybus (with help from cellist Kasia Urbaniak). Like many of these albums, the meditative and tranquil mood that such music generates doesn't stop it occasionally descending to background-style lift music. But there are some great songs here and if you're really keen to hear piano run-throughs of "Come Now Is The Time", "Hungry" and "Be The Centre" you might want to investigate.
