2010 was a great year for music, and particularly for worship music. There seems to have been a resurgence of creativity and exploration, married to a rich lyrical expression of the faith, and that has made me very happy indeed. There were a lot more than 10 albums in my “2010 Faves” category, but I managed to reduce it down and the names plus links to any reviews I’ve penned follow on. There’s also links to online retail should you choose to explore them yourselves. The list isn’t in numerical order, I just love these collections of songs. They have journeyed with me through the events of the last year and in many ways are the weft to the warp.
