TunesareusVirginia3 Stars Out Of 5Maybe not what you thinkSeptember 14, 2015TunesareusVirginiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3If you're not very familiar with these artists or just found this DVD while browsing, you should be aware that it's not at all what it seems. This is represented as being gospel music done in a classical style with two singers appearing to sing together. For the most part, it's neither. Except for the first song, which is just the orchestra, this is pretty much live praise and worship. Also, Ms Bynum and Mr Butler only sing about half of one song together. The rest of the time they are soloing. And a good bit of that is talking or, more aptly, "motivating" in Ms Bynum's case. Her efforts at trying to hype up the audience come across as misplaced. She is "at church" (even with the requisite backing choir) while the audience and orchestra are at a formal musical gala. Ms Bynum even alludes to wanting to take the event to a different level at times. Some of the audience does move towards Ms Bynum's way eventually, but they never fully go where she tries to take them. She's in a tabernacle while they're still in a concert hall. And the orchestra never leaves their solemn, concentrated demeanor. You often see them in the background looking as though they are impatiently waiting to start playing again. The whole thing comes across as mismatched.
The vocals, music, orchestra, sound, etc, are all fabulous. If this DVD had been presented as being the dynamic praise and worship music that it actually is, and if the setting had been better suited to the purpose, I'd give this 5 stars hands down. But as it is, the mismatched purposes and starkly different frames of reference are a real distraction that take away from either purpose.
NOTE: My recommendation is qualified. If you want the praise and worship that this actually is, then I recommend it. But if you're wanting something classical like this title and such would lead you to believe, keep looking.

Annie G.5 Stars Out Of 5Marvellous ! God is alive in the place each time you listen to it!December 21, 2014Annie G.I bought this DVD a couple of years ago and since then, I cannot stop listening to it! I did not know those talented singers, worshippers, doctors of music... but they are awesome ! The choir is professional, the orchestra is amazing and I am not ashamed to offer this jewel to evangelize non-christian co-workers and family members to explain what gospel is all about. I also give copies to brothers and sisters in the church to bless them, and they are. How many copies I bought? I have no idea, I come back all the time to get extra ones. How many times I listened to this masterpiece? Too many to count. Prizes should have been won but may God rewards every person who worked on this project. Blessings, blessings, blessings to all!
