Synopsis

Amazon.com
One of the most underappreciated releases of 1999, Heaven & Earth features some of the most exciting and creative female talent in the Christian music world. Michelle Tumes's worshipful ballad "For the Glory of Your Name" leads off the release, and could be one of her better recording efforts. Producer John Hartley, who wrote and managed this pleasing project, magically segues Tumes's wistful number into Jennifer Knapp's Celtic-oriented "Whisper My Name." It's a device tastefully used throughout as artists Nichole Nordeman, Margaret Becker, and Rebecca St. James blend one into the other. The seamless threading of Tumes's "My Dwelling Place" into St. James's "River of Life" explains why these singers are so well drawn together. Although stylistically different, each woman approaches the music in a spirit of worship. This is so much more than a collection: it's truly a well-woven celebration of talent. --Michael Lyttle

CD Reviews

Incredible Vocalists Sparkle On A Classic CD
11/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Shelly Tumes, Jennifer Knapp, Rebecca St. James, Nicole Nordeman, and Margaret Becker may be among the most diverse -- and best -- Lady vocalists around today. Shelly's vocals are ethereal and scrumptious. Jennifer's are down-to-earth and honest. Nicole is understatedly elegent. Rebecca is energetic, but capable of doing a mighty fine ballad (see "As We Wait"). Becker is 'da BOMB! Each is a 5-star. Together, I would rate them 25 stars! Their vocals are enhanced rather than obscured by the majestic and sometimes intense though understated orchestrations. Generally, I am not overly fond of compilation albums. I am WILD about this one! Don't delay! Purchase TODAY!"
A keeper

"I bought this because a fan of Jennifer Knapp but didn't know anything about the other artists. Though I was surprised at how mellow the album is overall, it's a lovely collection of beautiful music by very talented women. Some Celtic influence, sounding a little like Lorena McKennett at times."
Best intimate worship cd to date
Brian Reaves | Anniston, AL USA | 05/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd didn't get a lot of notice when it came out, despite the fact that it has 5 of the best female singers in Christian music. Each song is in and of itself an incredible worship song, but put it all together as one unit and it's becomes a worship EXPERIENCE. The best way to listen to this is beginning to end, as it was put together in such a manner that it flows beautifully. You won't find another cd like this (musically, "Streams" is close, but lyrically it can't touch it). You will NOT be disappointed with this one."
