My review:

   My favorite genre' of Christian music is Southern Gospel, but I have started listening to more Praise and Worship music in recent years than I used to. I have seen the Passion CDs but never have listened to one, so I was curious enough to review this CD.

  Overall, I like it. I was expecting a live worship CD for some reason, but all of the songs seem to be studio recordings. I am familiar with all but three of the featured singers, and only a couple of the songs.

  Personal favorites:
God and God Alone by Chris Tomlin
I Turn to Christ by Matt Redman
Good, Good Father by Krisitan Stanfill

  I never expected I'd like Crowder, and thought "My Victory" was a bit much for a P&W CD, though his second cut was better. There are a lot of good songs on the CD and other than "My Victory" are done very well. This is a great mix of vocalists and songs, and would make a great music library addition to fans of Praise and Worship music.
