Top tracks: "House of the Lord," "Eyes Upon the Land," "Broken Places"
Deriving inspiration from an excursion to Israel and their musical brotherhood, veteran Christian singer/songwriters Phil Keaggy, Randy Stonehill, and Bob Bennett teamed up with Idaho-based worship leader Buck Storm to capture the Holy Land's history and hope of peace. Many verses quote Scripture, while several tracks imbue the folksters' warm tones with Middle Eastern timbres—both indicators of the culture and its spiritual heritage.

But it is also each album creators' poetic contributions that supply Song with historic heart and thoughtful flow.1
