I Love Your Presence - Review and Giveaway

I Love Your Presence - Live from Phoenix

My husband has a gift for music.  He would disagree, but he doesn’t understand how those of us who have no musical gift admire those that do.  He plays in our church’s praise band – it’s his creative outlet after spending time with his head in computer code during the day.

I offered to review I Love Your Presence Live from Phoenix because I knew he would enjoy hearing new praise songs and might even find a few for his band to do.  For me, music is about the words and the beat.  He can hear each individual instrument, the arrangement, and all aspects of the music.  He has enjoyed the CD.  In fact, we were both excited to find both the lyrics and the chord progressions here Makes sense that these are available if the aim is to use them in worship.

I really enjoyed this download.  The songs are great for worship!  There’s just something special about live recordings - the feeling of being there, the raw sound of the artists rather than the studio manufactured sound. 
This album includes:

  1. Let It Come
  2. Glory To The King
  3. Saving Grace
  4. What Can I Bring
  5. Love Of God
  6. One Thing Remains
  7. Now And Ever
  8. Invitacion Fountain
  9. Sweet Mercies
  10. Isn't He / Amazing Grace
  11. I Love Your Presence
  12. Perfect Sacrifice
  13. I Lift My Eyes Up (Psalm 121)
Another aspect I appreciate about this album is where it came from. Vineyard Music is a non-profit music company specializing in worship music and the worship experience.

“Vineyard Worship exists as an organic extension of the Vineyard church movement in the USA (Vineyard USA). We are, in a phrase, "from the church, for the church". We are not a music company first and foremost; we are a non-profit worship ministry. Our efforts will be centered in the cultivation and empowerment of the core value of worship in the Vineyard or more simply put "to help the local church experience God", rather than in a profit-driven music business model.”

Non-profits have a place in my heart.  This is especially appealing for the music industry that seems aimed at stealing our children’s values to make a dime.
