Let Our Praise
LET OUR PRAISE BE AS INCENSE represents what was developed at Cumbrae, Scotland, where Celebration was in residence for 10 years. This recording contains a wonderful blend of music with roots that can still be traced back to the Hispanic influences of Houston as well as strains of Celtic music, from the contemplative music of Taize to a contemporary setting of Psalm 148 filled with percussion. This recording uses the rhythmic, energetic, Spanish-flavored communion setting, El Shaddai.
