Fervency of praise, apocalyptic yearning, and a worldwide dimension characterise this album. The music has been selected from the songbook CRY HOSANA and represents an ecumenical and intentional collection featuring many musical styles. Whether you are young or old, Catholic or Protestant, traditional or not, there is something here for you. Usefulness in worship, teaching and celebration has authenticated these songs. It is our joy to share them with you.
