Product Description

Just when the recent praise and worship movement threatened to stagnate, City on a Hill: Sing Alleluia provided a gust of fresh air. Like its predecessor, City on a Hill: Songs of Praise and Worship, this collaboration features some fascinating partnerships (with Third Day's Mac Powell and Fernando Ortega; and Bebo Norman; Caedmon's Call; and others) that yield pleasant results. Elsewhere, artists like Jars of Clay add traditional grace to the lustrous and rich possibilities of modern Christian music, polishing up the late-19th-century hymn "The Comforter Has Come." Coproducers Steve Hindalong and Marc Byrd wisely bookend Sing Alleluia with the century-old standard "All Creatures of Our God and King," a fitting irony for a record that exemplifies what worship music can be when artists stop worrying about what it should be. --Michael Lyttle

Format: Audio CD
If you have heard the first City on a Hill (released in 2000), you don't even have to think twice about buying this CD. The first one really raised the bar of worship albums. As soon as I put the first one in my CD player, I heard "God of Wonders" and it blew me away.
I was thrilled to hear that there was going to be a second one - it's here and it's AMAZING! It's great to have such a marvelous collection of artists all working together on this project - Jennifer Knapp, Caedmon's Call, FFH, Third Day, BeBo Norman, Nichole Nordeman, Jars of Clay, and Fernando Ortega (there are probably some I've left out!) - oh, and Phil Keaggy!
A Choral Prelude of All Creatures of Our God and King starts this worship experience, followed by the radio hit "Sing Alleluia", sung by Jennifer Knapp and Mac Powell from Third Day. This is a really incredible song that will lead you in your worship of the Lord.
It's great to see Fernando Ortega on this album also! He wrote the words to "Our Great God" and sings it with Mac Powell. One of my favorites on the album has to be "The Comforter has Come" by Jars of Clay.
Many talented songwriters worked on this album - Nichole Nordeman co-writes "Shine Your Light", which she sings with FFH. FFH fans will love "Hide Me In Your Heart".
Jennifer Knapp puts a new spin on the Lord's Prayer in "Hallowed" - a beautiful rendering. Familiar lyrics "The Lord be with you, and also with you" take a beautiful form on Lift Up Your Hearts. The orchestration on this song is simple and beautiful and a chorus of artists sings the responses to celebrant Derald Dougherty. Finishing up this trio of "liturgical" songs is Communion by Phil Keaggy.

As a rule, when the second in a CD series is better than the first, it's an event as rare as Halley's Comet. Well, Halley has happened. This CD is, from the opening gun to the final buzzer, a classic. There isn't even a mediocre track on this work. Every song is outstanding. Thematically, it takes right up where "City On A Hill" ends -- with "All Creatures Of Our God And King" framing an audio painting composed of great lyrics, solid production, and sensitive vocals. The musical style is basically acoustic, but with tasty variations thrown in to the mix. Every track is so good I cannot pick one out over the others. The musicians and vocalists are all outstanding, and they play together as a team, rather than just doing their own thing as a "contribution" to the CD. The result is outstanding. The addition of Jennifer Knapp, Bebo Norman, Fernando Ortega, Nicole Nordeman, and Phil Keaggy only serve to enhance the quality of the project. From the acoustic drive of "Sing Alleluia" and "Communion" to the quiet passion of "You Are Holy" and "Hallowed" to the anthemic "Our Great God" to the contemplative "The Comforter Has Come" to the Fleetwood Mackish "Shine Your Light" to the choir singing "Lift Up Your Hearts" to the rhythmic "Holy Is Your Name" to the folksy "Marvelous Light" and "Hide Me In Your Heart" to the traditional yet inventive renditions of "All Creatures," you will be captivated, encouraged, intellectually stimulated, and emotionally moved by this project. In a word, it's one of the five best CDs I own; and I would give it more than 5 stars, if I were allowed to. Period.

Like other reviewers have already mentioned this album is better than the first City on a Hill. The line-up of artists is stronger, and the quality of songs exceeds the first album. It is nice to see that these type projects continue to be successful.
The best songs of the album include "Sing Alleluia", "Hide Me in Your Heart", "Hallowed" and "Communion". They alone make the album worth a listen. But, the other songs are also strong. In fact, there is no real weak song among the group.
If you like the Christian artists who participated in the making of this album (Third Day, Caedmon's Call, FFH, Jars of Clay, Jennifer Knapp, etc.) buy it, you will not be disappointed. Or, if you are looking for a nice mix of different talents from the modern Christian music scene, this will fit your need. Enjoy.

The original City On A Hill CD brought together several of today's top Christian artists to glorify God through their musical gifts, and the results were amazing. It easily became one of the most artistic, creative, and original worship albums ever made. Now the second volume is out, and it proves to be just as good, if not better, than the first! Sing Alleluia features several artists from the original -- Caedmon's Call, Third Day, FFH, The Choir, and Jars of Clay -- and brings in Christian music heavyweights Jennifer Knapp, Nichole Nordeman, Fernando Ortega, Bebo Norman, and guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Like the first record, this one contains many artist collaborations, such as Jennifer Knapp and Third Day's Mac Powell on the title track (What an awesome pairing! It's great to have Miss Knapp around this time), Cliff & Danielle Young of Caedmon's Call and Phil Keaggy on "Communion" (another great pairing; I love both of these artists), and Mac Powell and Fernando Ortega on the power ballad "Our Great God" (definitely the best song on this album...gives me goosebumps every time!). These collaborations give the album the same sense of community that is present on the first. This album also has more of a church feel to it, opening and closing with the traditional church hymn "All Creatures of Our God and King", and ending with songs like Jen Knapp's "Hallowed" (based on the Our Father prayer), "Lift Up Your Hearts" featuring The Choir's Derri Daugherty, and the aforementioned "Communion" which leads directly into the closing hymn. Every song on this album is magnificent; there's not a filler track on the entire cd.Read more ›
