Product Description

Amazon.com

In an unprecedented worship experience, the City on a Hill project is a community effort that brings together top performers to glorify God. With an amazing roster of talent that includes Sixpence None the Richer, Jars of Clay, FFH, Third Day, Caedmon's Call, and others, this tender collection of songs is more than a showcase of separate worship styles. Many of the compositions are collaborative efforts among the bands, and this fact gives the recording a distinct feel of common ownership among the musicians. Breaking from their usual energized styles, the performers take a different slant in these songs, with most tracks offering an acoustically oriented and soft-sung vibe. Any fan surely will appreciate the witness of these industry leaders, who focus their talents solely toward God and the new musical flavors that ensue. In conjunction with this CD, the book City on a Hill: Reflections on Our Spiritual Journeys brings together journal-like entries that were penned by the artists, and offers a glimpse into their inner lives. --Israel Button

Recently there has been a trend of various artists working together and producing compilation worship albums. Some of these compilations have been tremendous (for example, "Exodus") while others have fallen far short of expectations. "City on a Hill" is one of the compilations that works. The entire album is extremely worshipful in a "Sixpence None the Richer" / "Caedmon's Call" style. There are new songs from Third Day, Sixpence None The Richer, FFH, Jars of Clay, and then compilation songs from The Choir, Sonic Flood, Peter Furler (Newsboys), and the late Gene Eugene. The songs work well together, flowing both in lyrical theme and music style. If you are a fan of any of the artists the CD is well worth getting but it also stand alone as a superb worship album.

I bought this CD based on the list of artists who participated in the project. Although the album is more mellow than I expected, overall, I was impressed with it. The concept for the album is interesting...bringing together modern Christian artists to collaborate and write new worship songs. If you think about it, that is a pretty big challenge given the diversity of artists and groups on this album. Luckily, they pull it off very well.
The songs I liked most on the album are "God of Wonders", "The Stone","With Every Breath", "Merciful Rain", and "City on a Hill". The others are good, but most are a little softer than I typically like.
I recommend this CD to anyone looking for an album full of good (and mellow) worship songs. If you are looking for an album of modern Christian worship songs that will get your blood pumping this is not the best album to get. But, if you enjoy a more acoustic approach to worship music, you will most likely enjoy this album.

"City on a Hill" is an awesome CD produced by Steve Hindalong, percussionist and chief lyricist of The Choir. The recording features collaborative efforts by outstanding artists such as Caedmon's Call, Jars of Clay, Sixpence None the Richer, Third Day, FFH and The Choir. Leigh Nash, vocalist for Sixpence, opens the CD with a lovely prelude on "God of Wonders." This track written by Marc Byrd and Hindalong also features terrific vocals by Mac Powell (Third Day) and Cliff and Danielle Young (Caedmon's Call). Byrd also penned "With Every Breath," a song of hope and encouragement, which features Nash and Dan Haseltine (Jars) on vocals. The late Gene Eugene appears on two tracks including "I Remember You" on which he plays the piano to Powell's stirring vocals that remind us of Christ's death and resurrection. My personal favorite of this 13-track recording is Hindalong's "Precious Jesus." Derri Daugherty (The Choir) handles the guitars, and he a Nash team up on the vocals. To hear Daugherty and Nash together is a tremendous blessing in itself, and the passion with which this number was written and performed makes it a perfect song of reflection and communion. Whether you regularly invest in worship CD's or not, "City on a Hill" is a recording you will find entertaining, moving, worshipful, and full of praise. This is not just a great worship recording; this is a great recording.

From the liner notes: "It has been said that when our fire burns brightly and warm enough, those who stand in the dark and cold will be drawn to it. It is my hope that as you listen to the songs on this project, you too will become a part of the community, and that together, our fire will burn more brightly. Then we will indeed be "a city on a hill cannot be hidden." (Matt 5:14)
The artists who worked together on this project indeed formed a community. They sang on each other's songs, sometimes just one person from a group would do a solo on another group's song. These unique mixtures of talent and their dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ result in the most incredible worship album I've seen in quite some time.
This is a hard album to describe - the best comparison I can make would be to Exodus, which was released a couple of years ago. A similarity to Exodus (besides the compilation type of album around a current theme) is the outstanding artwork on the cover and in the pages of the liner notes. Jimmy Abegg did the Exodus artwork and Kim Thomas did the cover art and textures on "City on a Hill" This project also includes photos by Kristin Barlowe and others.
When I listened to the beginning of this CD in the Christian bookstore, I was only about 30 seconds into the first track "God of Wonders" when I decided to buy the album. The prelude to the first track features Leigh Nash (Sixpence None the Richer) and she does an incredible job of leading you into this song. This song is already getting airplay on Christian radio.
The second song, "The Stone" was written by Jonathan Noel, Margaret Becker's keyboardist and Christian artist in his own right.

City on A Hill is a musical praise project featuring a blending of 80s and 90s progressive Christian artists. I will not pretend to write anything new that the other reviewers have not already contributed, but I do feel the need to add a strong 5-star rating to what is one of the best praise albums ever to be released from the Christian music community. Produced by Steve Hindalong (The Choir), a well accomplished producer, the quality of this recording is perfect.
One of the strongest features of the project is the combination of older and newer artist. Gene Eugene (of Adam Again) playing with Third Day's Mac Powell is soul warming and reminds us why we miss Euguene so much. Hindalong and Derri Daugherty's (The Choir) effort with Leigh Nash is brilliant. All of the artist (Jars of Clay, Third Day, Caedmans Call, Sixpence None the Richer, FFH, Sonic Flood, and even some individual performances from other progressive artists) creates a whos-who of contemporary Christian music. Each has written these new songs for the album.
But here is the best part of the album - none of the artist steals any of the attention away from the Person who is the subject of the recording. You cannot help but be drawn to God and think of Him and His holiness when listening to each song. You will likely spend much of the time listening to this album in prayer, on your knees or with a tear in your eye. It is that moving and that unique of a contribution to today's CCM scene. There is a good mixture of slow and medium paced songs, but there are no hard-edge songs here. It is not the place for it. The lyrics, recording quality, talent and packaging all make this a Praise album that is worthy of your ears and time.
