This is a surprising collection of songs that encapsulates many unusual high points of this pioneering Christian-rock band. From an early version of "A Million Years" (mastered straight from a 45 RPM single) to three songs from the band's next-to-last record, Speckled Bid, Love Songs and Prayers turns out to be one of the first "concept" greatest-hits packages: Each song fits neatly in the love song or prayer category, with little ambiguity between the two. While that means that some of the Choir's finer musical moments are underrepresented ("Children of Time," "Circle Slide"), it does give room for some of their more obscure gems to shine ("Black Cloud," "Car, Etc."). --Brad Caviness

The best Christian band in the world

"The Choir has long been the "thinking man's Christian Band". The lyrics are deep and poetic, the music is sometimes-rocking sometimes-atmospheric, but the whole thing works better than any other band I know. This cd is a collection of their "Best" up to that point (they have actually since then released "Free Flying Soul" and "Flap Your Wings" which both have some of their best songs on them - their live cd "Let It Fly" is available on Amazon and has some great stuff on it too). The best songs on here are "A Sentimental Song" and "To Bid Farewell". Songs that are missing that should have made it on here are "Circle Slide" and "About Love". Let this be your intro to this amazing band, and then go from here getting everything of theirs you can get your hands on."
The greatest "unknown" hits, by one of the greatest bands.

""Love Songs and prayers" is a collection of some of the best "Choir" songs. The "Choir" is a Christian alternative band which treads the line of the secular and spiritual, with dark lyrics which cause contemplation about love, life and God. Some of the highlights include "a sentemental song"; "so far away" and "about love" all love songs lifted into a euphoric dimension by the rock guitar of Derri Daughterty, as only he can play it."
