Item Description...
Overview
It seemed like a crazy idea at the time – gathering twelve of the most skilled Christian songwriters for a week-long retreat in rural Scotland. They'd pay their own way, write together and give up all claim to any royalties earned from the songs. Crazy. Then it got a little more crazy; within a few weeks of the retreat the writers were back together once more at London's Abbey Road studios to record 14 songs in just three days, emerging with the spine and heart of an album. Even more crazy. And then things got interesting; would the publishers, labels managers and countless other industry personnel join in? Would the Christian scene unite to do something they'd never attempted before? Would they forgo income so that money could be raised to help fight poverty around the world? The answer was a 'yes'. A very loud one. And now, a few months later CompassionArt the album is set for release. Featuring 14 songs that stretch and inspire, joining the dots between faith, music and action, CompassionArt brings the heart of worship a little closer to meeting the needs of a world in pain. All proceeds generated from the CD, book and song royalties will support the work of 16 initial Charities over the lifetime of these songs. The four headline projects are Stop The Traffik, Watoto, Ray Of Hope and Hand Of Hope.The brainchild of Martin and Anna Smith, the songwriters including Paul Baloche, Steven Curtis-Chapman, Stuart Garrard, Israel Houghton, Tim Hughes, Graham Kendrick, Andy Park, Matt Redman, Michael W. Smith, Chris Tomlin, Darlene Zschech . Several other additional guest performers: Kirk Franklin, Amy Grant, Joel Houston, Christy Nockels, Leeland Mooring, tobyMac and CeCe Winans. Also included with the cd is a packed dvd – including a 50 minute documentary, trailers, videos and pdf downloads of song and chord charts for all of the tracks. As well as all this, the writers united to produce a book- The Art of Compassion; a twelve chapter unraveling of the trail of worship, hope and justice found in each of the writers' lives.Back to the album though; what does it all sound like? Hope, justice, peace, enlightenment and truth. Grooves and tunes and melodies that work under the skin and into the heart. Put it another way; these songs sound like the future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great CD!!!  Jun 8, 2009
Various styles - everyone should like (at least) a couple of songs on this CD. The DVD is GREAT for those who are unfamiliar with these artists AND/OR for those who want a behind the scenes glimpse of them as they write/worship together!

The leap of faith that was taken to produce this CD and how the Lord brought it all together makes for a TRULY inspirational DVD! A MUST for ALL contemporary worship leaders and song writers!!!
 
Compassion Music  Apr 21, 2009
This assortment of artist is great. The cause is even greater. The money goes to wipe out poverty and hunger in Jesus name!
 
A great collaboration with a purpose  Mar 22, 2009
Martin & Anna Smith namen eind 2007 het initiatief om niet zomaar naast Delirious? een stichting op te richten om goede doelen te steunen, maar om de eigen gaven en talenten in te zetten voor praktische hulpverlening. Daartoe werd een keur aan worship leiders en songwriters uitgenodigd in een Schots huis om gezamenlijk nieuwe liederen te schrijven. Paul Baloche, Steven Curtis Chapman, Stu Garrad (Delirious? gitarist), Israel Houghton, Tim Hughes, Graham Kendrick, Andy Park, Matt Redman, Michael W. Smith, Chris Tomlin en Darlene Zschech. In het koude noorden van Schotland zagen zo 20 nieuwe liederen in gezamenlijkheid het licht. Vier weken later werd de basis voor 14 ervan opgenomen in de Londense Abbey Road studio's. Andermaal uniek, want om allemaal tijd te hebben om elkaar in Londen te treffen tussen de eigen bedieningen, tours en dergelijke, is lastig. Op diverse plekken elders op de wereld werden aanvullende vocalen van Amy Grant, TobyMac, Cece Winans, Leeland Mooring, Joel Houston, Christy Nockels en Kirk Franklin opgenomen. Tim Harries nam in Praag met het lokale filharmisch orkest voor strijkpartijen op, en ook het indrukwekkende kerkkook van Lakewood Church (kijk en luister maar eens naar Michael W. Smith's A New Hallelujah) werd op afstand toegevoegd. In Uganda werd het Watoto Childrens Choir betrokken in de opnamen. Het album opent met een up-tempo rockcreatie van Chris Tomlin en Martin Smith, dat met Kirk Franklin en het Watoto Childrens Choir tot een krachtig getuigenis Come To The Water uitgroeide. Israel Houghton heeft maar een kleine aanmoediging nodig om zijn met TobyMac en Darlene Zschech tot een explosieve mix van gospel, rap en rock verweven Shout Praise in gang te zetten. Herkenbaar is de sound van het door Matt Redman met Tim Hughes en Joel Houston geschreven King of Wonders. Paul Baloche en het Lakewood Choir nemen de power ballad Lead Me To Rock voor hun rekening. Tim Hughes en Steven Curtis Chapman mengen hun eigen herkenbare stijlen in We Won't Stay Silent, waarna Amy Grant en Michael W. Smith na jaren weer een duet volzingen: Highly Favoured. Blues en gospel gaan hand in hand in Fill My Cup, dat hoofdrollen weglegt voor Martin Smith, Cece Winans en het Lakewood Choir. Leeland Mooring en Andy Park zingen de ballad Friend of the Poor. Maar liefst 6 minuten duurt King of the Broken, een nieuw gezang dat Darlene Zschech, Israel Houghton, Leeland Mooring en opnieuw het Lakewood Choir bij elkaar brengt. You Have Shown Us is een ballad van Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche en Steven Curtis Chapman, waarna het Praagse orkest het voortouw neemt op Until the Day, geschreven door Darlene Zschech en Graham Kendrick. Stompin' beats maken een einde aan de reeks rustige nummers. TobyMac en Kirk Franklin nemen de urban road in Let It Glow. Zo'n typische Smitty ballad is So Great, waarop ook Israel Houghton, Christy Nockels en het Lakewood Choir te horen zijn. There Is Always a Song van Martin Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman en het Watoto Childrens Choir maakt duidelijk dat muziek, aanbidding en de handen uit de mouwen steken, omzien naar armen, weduwen en wezen allemaal bij elkaar horen. Het Watoto Childrens Choir sluiten met een reprise van There Is Always a Song af.

Elk van de 12 genodigde koos een eigen goed doel uit, waar 50% van de opbrengsten naartoe gaan. De andere 50% gaat naar CompassionArt. De artiesten zelf hebben dus volledig belangeloos bijgedragen aan dit bijzondere project. Naast de CD is een begeleidende DVD meegeleverd. Daarop vind je de music video's van There Is Always a Song en Friend of the Poor, de trailer, downloadable bladmuziek en songteksten. Tenslotte een uitgebreide documentaire over de totstandkoming van de liedjes, waarin veel 'zo heb je hen nog niet eerder meegemaakt' momenten verpakt zitten. Tezamen is dit een geweldig project, van begaafde artiesten, verdienstelijk spelende musici (van drummer Dan Needham en Tommy Sims op bas, Stu G en Akil Thompson op gitaar, Howard Francis en Michael W. Smith op toetsen, tot aanvullingen van Troy Donnockley op pipes & whistles, Beverly Killingsworth op harp en Robert Anderson op percussie.

Bij de CD/DVD hoort nog een apart verkocht boek, The Art of Compassion, waarin de 12 songwriters elk in een hoofdstuk hun eigen gedachten, hoop en moeite met compassie, aanbidding, armoede en onrecht beschrijven.

I really appreciate what these musicians have done. The music is great, and I've been listening to it a lot over the past couple of weeks.

A couple are really great during my alone times with God. I would highly recommend this CD and DVD.
