Album Review - Valley of Vision
After re-listening to this album over the last couple of days I thought I would write a review. Sovereign Grace Music have produced some excellent albums and this is no exception. Inspired by Valley of Vision, a book of Puritan prayers and devotions, the cd of the same name has a great mix of devotional songs suitable for reflection, personal praise and quiet meditation (In the Valley; The Precious Blood) as well as songs which I am sure will be congregational classics in years to come (Heavenly Father, Beautiful Son; Let Your Kingdom Come). There are songs which stick in the mind very easily and you find yourself humming and singing them as you go about the day. What is also very encouraging is that there are songs expressing varying emotions from joy to sorrow and varying themes from grace to perseverance. Heavenly Father, Beautiful Son is a fantastic, expressly Trinitarian song which is rare in todays contemporary worship music. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys listening to praise and worship cds and anyone looking for new songs for their church to sing.
