Following on from studio albums Hold On, Unfailing Love and Radio (EP), the time was right to capture and share Trent leading worship at their home church (Trent Vineyard, Nottingham). Filmed on a snowy evening during February 09, people gathered from far and wide for a powerful and special night of worship.
The main feature, at over 70 minutes, includes four brand new songs including the title track Burn Bright, alongside some of their most influential songs such as Perfect Sacrifice, I Will
Hold On, Unfailing Love and Love Divine. Bonus features include behind the scenes footage and band interviews, a look at the Arches - one of Trent Vineyard's key ministries,
an interview with John and Debbie Wright (pastors) and Songteach videos (learn to play the songs).
As one of the principal worship bands at Trent Vineyard, Trent have been writing songs together for over eight years. You may have seen them on the road leading worship at New Wine (Shepton Mallet), Greenbelt or SoulFest (USA) as well as playing at Spring Harvest, Passion 07, Adoration 08, Awakenings and several Hope 08 events amongst others.
Trent are known for their collective approach to writing songs breathing fresh expression into Biblical themes, crafting songs born out of their walk with God as part of the Trent Vineyard.
Review from everythingchristian.co.uk
Trent, for the uninitiated, are the resident worship ministry from Trent Vineyard in Nottingham. They also have quite a following at New Wine, and were the resident worship band at Venue 2 this year (for at least one of the weeks). Their brand of contemporary pop/rock played with the precision of a chart outfit appeals to a wide age range, and the intensity of their worship without the showiness of some other well-known worship ministries.
Their latest album, Burn Bright, was recorded live at the church in Nottingham, and offers excellent value with both an audio CD and a live video produced to a TV-quality. Additional bonus items on the DVD include a mini-documentary about Trent, interviews with the pastors of Trent Vineyard and some tuition videos to teach the songs. Some of the songs have already appeared on other Trent albums, but there are also new songs here. Standout tracks for me included the intense, sub-1980s groove on Love Divine and the opening track Now and Ever, both well-suited to congregational worship.
Christian CDs can often be quite expensive, especially when compared to the mass-market mainstream chart equivalent, so value-adding as we see here can make a considerable difference when swallowing the cost. Inspiring content from a great ministry.
