Subtitled 'Shorter Songs For Worship', the sleeve points out that these have been written and been used by congregations and conferences many times bigger than the Wild Goose Worship Group. "From The Rising Of The Sun" was given its first airing at a late night worship meeting of the '93 Greenbelt while "Behold I Make All Things New" was devised for a YMCA international youth camp when a third of the participants said they could only sing two notes (hence the middle part with two notes!). With songs composed for such a diverse variety of worship experiences it means that these recordings are by no means definitive. Says the sleeve, "To try to capture that rugged spontaneity by having 16 people stand in a circle and sing in a church hall is to attempt the impossible." But for all that the songs, often quite beautiful and particularly the occasional prayer interjections are exceedingly moving. Recommended to all those bored with the trivia sometimes produced by more commercial sources of worship songs.
