Worthy is the Lamb
A Feast of Praise and Worship - Recorded Live at a Special Praise Gathering, Christ for the Nations Institute, Dallas, 1983
Probably the most varied in terms of content, this album really is a veritable feast of praise and worship. There's so much on this one that it's hard to pick out highlights! From the brilliant full-blooded praise in the first quarter of the album, right through to the uplifting and inspirational 'Worthy O Worthy' and 'Hallelujah, Lamb upon the Throne' (often mistakenly sung together as two verses of the same song), and then the awesome title track 'Worthy is The Lamb', there's really something for everyone here.
There's also the cleverly introduced Latin beat of 'He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High', the gentle 'Oh how He loves you and me', led by the impressive baritone voice of (I think) Todd Pettygrove, the sensitive piano intro for 'Who shall separate us', the Dales classics 'The Steadfast Love of the Lord never ceases' and 'Lord You are more precious than silver'. Lovely songs from a wonderful era of worship, with brilliant instrumental work and vocals, but all the time without being contrived or scripted, this is a real gem of an album.
