The Heart Of Worship - Soul Survivor Live '97
The Soul Survivor Christian youth organization's annual festival is the focal point of the most influential movement among Christian youth in Britain at the moment. The festival has been largely responsible for the phenomenal success (in the British Christian music scene) of Delirious? and Matt Redman, and the worship songs sung there are sure to dominate most British contemporary worship events over the next year.
Kevin Prosch, Matt Redman, and Tim Hughes lead worship, backed by
two groups of musicians whose names will be familiar to any follower of
Matt Redman. These three worship leaders are also represented in
the song-writing, along with Martin Smith (of Delirious?) and a couple
of others. Musically the album ranges from the industrial-tinged pop sounds
of Martin Smith's "History Maker" (from Delirious's King Of Fools)
to the acoustic roots sounds of Kevin Prosch's "Shout to the Lord" to the
synthesizer/acoustic guitar of "Pure Like You."
All is stripped away, and I simply come.
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth,
That will bless your heart.
