Reviewed by Tom Lennie

As an addition to their successful 'Worship Anthems' recordings of 2009 and 2010, Elevation now presents a batch of 16 often upbeat hymns recorded at various live worship events across the UK; all with the unifying feature that they carry an "anthemic" atmosphere. And that they certainly do - these are all popular, timeless treasures, such as "All Hail The Power Of Jesus Name", "Amazing Grace", "Here Is Love", "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling", and so on. The tracks are picked from existing recordings - the majority actually stem from the live annual Keswick outputs ('Faith That Works', 'Unshackled', etc); others from various Spring Harvest recordings, and one or two from the likes of Detling conventions. The sounds all come together nicely, and most tracks are appealing, stirring and uplifting, though it's true that the format is rather predictable. Favourites to my ears are the gorgeous "I Stand Amazed", the group a cappela on "Amazing Grace" and the fine baritone solo on "Great Is Thy Faithfulness". Hymn writers, thankfully, as well as song lyrics, are shown on the sleeve, though it's a pity we're not told who the worship leaders on appropriate tracks are. If you enjoy theologically rich hymnal classics delivered with vibrancy, while sticking always to traditional melodies, this is for you if you don't have many of the source albums.
