Overview

Declare Your Name

For the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir's second Integrity album, founder Carol Cymbala and Jason Michael Webb have written a batch of new songs that casts the large group in a contemporary mode. That is to say, this is not traditional or traditional-sounding religious choir music. Rather, despite the large vocal group and its accompanying orchestra, the music is more in a pop/AC style, often employing soloists in call and response format. Thus, the album should be categorized more as a CCM effort. Cymbala and Webb actually locate the sound not far from the choir's 1972 founding; the music often would have fit on late-'70s or early-'80s pop radio and displays the influence of pop/soul masters like Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie. Richie's Caribbean lilt (e.g., "All Night Long [All Night]") is on display on such tunes as "It All Belongs to You" and "Coming Back." There are songs that are taken by the choir alone, but even these often boast buoyant pop arrangements, such as "Where Can I Go." "Helpless," on the other hand, is set to an acoustic guitar gently fingerpicked as accompaniment to a male solo singer, and the choir is not heard at all. The result is a varied collection in terms of the music. Of course, the message is constant, as choir and soloists profess their faith, leading up to the stirring and catchy title song in which they assure their Savior they are not afraid to "declare your name."
