Music review: Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy Faithfulness features some of Noel Jones’s most popular compositions.

By Darren Waterworth

It seems only right that Ringwood Citadel Band would record an album featuring the music of Noel Jones.

It is a special way that the band can honour Noel, a member for almost 45 years, who has been a major influence on its ministry and music-making over this time.

The music features some of Noel’s most popular compositions; popular because they have brought many blessings to listeners and performers around The Salvation Army world. Noel has the gift of not over-complicating his compositions, so the message is not lost in the music.

You’ll find it very hard not to sing along with the band as you listen to ‘No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus’ and ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’, and the hymn medleys ‘The Name of Jesus’ and ‘Praise Him’.

And let’s not forget plenty of toe-tapping as the band rollicks through Noel’s stylistic trademark march ‘He Lives’. For many, the highlight of the recording will be ‘Abide With Me’, which features Noel as pianoforte soloist.

While you listen to this recording, there is a good chance that you be very aware of God’s presence. In the busyness of life, this will help you to find some time to stop, listen and be blessed.
