A new decade has commenced and what better way to enter this season of your life than with fresh, new music to set the tone for the year? “Greater Mount Calvary Live” is the first major gospel release of 2011 and, if this is any indication of what gospel music fans should expect to hear in 2011, we are in for an incredible year!
Greater Mount Calvary Holy Church, pastored by the esteemed Bishop Alfred A. Owens, Jr. and his wife Co-Pastor Susie C. Owens, has long held a reputation as a world-class ministry in every aspect and this project simply substantiates that claim. The intense praise and impassioned worship that are a normal part of the Sunday morning worship experience at Calvary has been captured in such a way that any casual listener is quickly converted into an active participant; each song presenting one the opportunity to enter into a different level of worship.
With the support of veteran super-producer, Steven Ford (T.D. Jakes, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Michael W. Smith, Tye Tribbett, etc.), “Greater Mount Calvary Live” paints a picture of the versatility of this dynamic music ministry. There’s no shortage of hard-driving church as exemplified by Calvary’s arrangement of the late Bishop Kenneth H. Moales, Sr’s now-famous “War Cry” led by Co-Pastor Susie Owens along with the more traditional, down home feel of “He Could Have Let Me Drown“. From the radio-friendly “He’s Worthy” to the transcendental “We Worship Your Name“, there’s a little something for everybody!
Paramount to all of the aforementioned commendations, the anointing is undeniably present in all 17 tracks and this is one project that is sure to be enjoyed by all. Do yourself a favor and purchase a copy of “Greater Mount Calvary Live: As Told By The Music Ministry“…and what a story they have to tell!
