Overview

An all-star cast gathers to pay tribute to the legendary Keith Green, widely regarded as one of the fathers of Christian music. Though there already exists a very comprehensive Green retrospective (The Ministry Years, Vols. I & II), Your Love Broke Through shows that the modern worship movement has its roots in Green's artistry as well. That these songs have withstood the passing years is unquestionable; Green's passionate lyrics in many ways make this music more relevant than the litany of praise that makes up so much of today's worship playlist. Rebecca St. James does a nice job on title track, "Your Love Broke Through," and worship leader Darlene Zschech adds an impassioned performance on the tender "How Majestic Is Thy Name." "There Is One" is also worth mentioning; Green never finished the song, but Michael W. Smith and Delirious's Martin Smith tackled the job, turning it into an instant classic. Your Love Broke Through commemorates Green's death 20 years ago, bringing this timeless music to a new generation -- and not a moment too soon.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Green's death, this tribute reintroduces his music to a modern Christian audience. Contemporary Christian singers like Michael W. Smith and Rebecca St. James take part, as do many newer talents and worship leaders. Fans of Green may also be interested in one of Smith's contributions, an unfinished Green-penned track that he completed with collaborator Martin Smith. Serving as the launching point for several re-releases and a biographical video, this album will be of interest to fans of the genre as well as anyone interested in hearing the lost song that Smith finished.
