About This Product
Worship Leader Magazine Review
Lovers of acoustic-flavored, guitar driven worship will want to consider this collection of songs from the likes of Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman and other contemporary worship leaders. The Allens weave several of the songs into blended-worship medleys based on particular themes (e.g., "How Can I Keep from Singing?" is joined with the hymn "I Will Sing the Wondrous Story" and the chorus "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever"). Other nice features include simple but effective narration, rendered by the worship leader (with two optional storytellers). Keeping the narration short (and utilizing familiar songs) allows for the collection to be presented more as a worship concert than a performance, therefore fostering more audience participation than is often the case in a choral musical. The production notes also give instructions for an optional communion service that can be incorporated into the mix.

A worship experience effective for Easter and services throughout the year. With songs from Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Third Day like "How can I Keep from Singing," "Amazing Grace—My Chains are Gone" and "Communion," this music inspires true worship from choir and congregation. The narration includes testimonies from John Newton and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which express the message of freedom we have in Christ. There is also an opportunity to share communion (appropriate music included in the book).
