iTunes Review

Over 30 years ago, John Michael Talbot began his career as a Catholic folk troubadour with a musical interpretation of the Mass — now, with Worship and Bow Down, he returns to this theme with a deepened sense of artistry and spiritual vision. As both a veteran singer/songwriter and the founder of a monastic community, he brings a unique sensibility to his classically influenced compositions. Talbot is at the height of his powers, matching lyrics based upon sacred texts to melodies suggestive of church music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Worship and Bow Down embroiders its songs with evocative string and woodwind orchestrations, framing Talbot’s haunting tenor at the center of the album. While this song-cycle is best appreciated as a unified work, certain tracks stand out for their sheer beauty and intensity of feeling. “Hind’s Feet on High Places,” “Nothing Is Impossible” and “Hail Mary” have the resonance of ancient hymns, yet feel immediate. A series of a cappella chants – particularly “Lamb of God” – achieve a crystalline purity of emotion.

worship and bow down

John Michael does it again. A fantastic recording from a truly gifted man. I've always liked John's music, John is one of the few christian artists who really give all glory to the father, son and the holy spirit. So why did I only give this album 4 stars. A good question. I happen to be one of the few catholics who don't believe in praying to Mary, that may upset other catholics, but I can only be honest. So I wasn't happy with the hail Mary song. And that's why this album only gets 4 stars. Even Mary gave all the glory to God for the miracle of the virgin birth. If this song hadn't been on this album, it would have as per usual from me got the usual 5 stars. Appologies if catholics are offended by what I have written here, again, I can only be honest and tell you what I believe. Even Jesus says I am the truth the way and the life and nobody can come to the father but through me. I think this scripture is quite clear, I can't ask Mary to interceed for me, again another scripture, there is only one mediator between man and God, that's Christ. And that is what I believe, and that's why this album only got 4 stars.
