Even a three-disc pack of 50 tracks can only give us a selection of favourites from the vast hymnody repertoire but this is a satisfying box set with a strap line of "what the world's churches are singing today." 'The World's Favourite Hymns' gives a broad overview of traditional and modern hymns and a variety of presentations, from grand orchestra to rock band to folk to MOR. Something for everyone, really, and all very professionally done. It makes a rip-roaring start with Paul Baloche's "How Great Thou Art" with the band playing to a live audience and plenty of excitement. Other band versions I enjoyed are John Barbour's "Joyful, Joyful" and the folky "O For A Thousand Tongues" from the David Crowder Band. Modern hymns include "Cornerstone" and Darlene Zschech's "Shout To The Lord" - two great songs that merit their huge popularity. Stuart Townend's "The Power Of The Cross" deserves to be better known and I liked Chris McClarney's new version of "Blessed Assurance". These are all well-respected worship leaders and it's good to see our rich hymn heritage being celebrated.

"After the Bible, the next most valuable book for the Christian is a good hymnal. Let any young Christian spend a year prayerfully meditating on the hymns of Watts and Wesley alone, and he will become a fine theologian. Then let him read a balanced diet of the Puritans and the Christian mystics. The results will be more wonderful than he could have dreamed." A. W. Tozer
