CD: Let the Worshippers Arise
Artist: Phillips, Craig & Dean
Label: INO Records
Quote: “I couldn’t be happier with the songs on this album. So many things came together to make this one of our favorite CDs. I’m really excited to perform these songs in front of an audience.” –Randy Phillips
FYI: Let the Worshippers Arise features four songs co-written by trio members Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig and Dan Dean, along with the powerful medley “In Christ Alone,” combining the Keith Getty/Stuart Townend-penned version with the 1994 Song of the Year version.
The Bottom Line: Phillips, Craig & Dean are known for their ability to write songs the church loves to sing and the trio’s newest CD, Let the Worshippers Arise, won’t disappoint those who love this group’s signature harmonies and fresh worship melodies. With a mixture of original and familiar songs, this album marks the final installment in PCD’s worship trilogy, following the success of the albums Let My Words Be Few and Let Your Glory Fall.
Featuring: “Friend of God,” “Because I’m Forgiven,” “You Are God Alone (not a god),” “In Christ Alone (medley),” “Let the Worshippers Arise,” “My Redeemer Lives,” “Be the Praise of My Heart,” “Awake My Soul (Christ is Formed in Me),” “Making Melody,” “Mighty Is the Power of the Cross” and “Wonderful Merciful Savior.” —Debra Akins
