As the September 7 launch date for The Well approaches, I find myself furiously searching for appropriate, content-solid, music to present to our Music coordinator, Cliff Cline. The pool of excellent choices is much deeper than I initially anticipated and I suspect I’m still in the shallow end here. Against the stereotype criticism that all contemporary music is simplistic and repetitive, we have a solid line-up emerging, led by: ‘In Christ Alone’, ‘Before The Throne Of God Above’, and ‘Blessed Be The Name’. Additionally, I am finding more and more of the ‘old favourites’ redone in a contemporary way. A huge thanks to my Director of Children’s Ministry, Diana Loach, for furnishing me with the CD, ‘Hymns: Ancient and Modern‘…we’ll definitely be using a few from there.
One of my favourite traditional hymns (cited in my most recent post) is ‘Jesus Paid It All’. Kristian Stanfill’s updated version is outstanding–have listen/watch via the video below. As for the ‘Comments‘ section of this post, I’d be extremely grateful for your music recommendations for The Well. Thanks in advance!
