Last modified: 08 Jun 2004
Compilation album 'The Best Worship Songs... Ever', which includes several Delirious? tracks, has become one of the biggest selling albums in UK Christian music history. The three-CD box set was released on 29th March 2004 and features 50 of the most popular recent worship songs. Other artists on the album include Matt Redman, Rebecca St James, Tim Hughes, Darlene Zschech, Sonicflood and Graham Kendrick,
Unlike most Christian CDs in the UK, 'The Best Worship Songs... Ever' was available in both Christian bookshops and mainstream record stores. Retailers including the supermarket Tesco and popular store Woolworths have reported high sales of the album. In May the CD even reached number 15 in the official Radio1 'Top 40 Compilation Albums' Chart. Sales of the album have now topped 70,000 copies.
British Christian label Kingsway joined forces with music giants Virgin/EMI to make the album. Each of the 3 discs on the album contains a Delirious? track. 'Shout To The North', 'Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble', 'I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever' and 'Lord You Have My Heart' all appear on the album.
