In the last post, my dad lamented the dearth of modern Easter songs in the church. The same could be said of songs for the seasons of the Church in general. This is why my church has done two Advent albums, and why our Worship Arts pastor encourages folks to write music related to the church calendar — songs for Pentecost, Lent, Advent, Good Friday, Easter, etc.
Our latest recording project, which they’re working on right now, is a double album of Isaac Watts hymns with slightly updated lyrics and new music. The first album is congregationally-oriented, with songs suitable for singing in our gatherings; the second comprises contributions from some of our… um… edgier musicians, including one by my dear friends the O’Nans.
Check out the Advent albums and our other music here.
