Metanoia have been in the studio and the first of our Christmas releases is out now for streaming! It is a cover of a Resound Worship song by Judy Gresham that we’ve been playing at Rock Mass for a few years.
We hope to put together a lyric video for this in the coming days. We also hope to releasing a Christmas Carol in a couple of weeks time.
It is no secret that Ruth and I love music by Geraldine Latty. She has recently collaborated with Kate Simmonds on a whole album of Christmas songs. Some are suitable for choirs, some for soloists and some for children. Those of us who know our Christmas Carols will spot some familiar themes and repurposed lyrics thrown into the mix with a modern gospel feel. Even better news, they are giving the sheet music away for free over on Geraldine’s website.
Why not give it a listen and see if there’s something to put into your Christmas services.
Our friends at Resound Worship are hard at work on a double album of that is being release in the new year. The first single is out this week and it is a proper ear worm!
When we went to this year’s song writing retreat at Wydale, one of the highlights was My Redeemer Lives by Joel Payne and Matt Weeks. We’ve been fortunate enough to be road testing the song at Holy Nativity and everyone loves it. It does have one downside however. Everyone ends up singing it all afternoon when they’ve gone home. Fortunately, it’s now on YouTube and Spotify so we can listen to it as much as we like.
One of my abiding memories from the song writing retreat is everyone at Wydale recording the backing vocals in the chapel. Matt Weeks was standing on a chair with his hands in the air conducting us to come in on the right beats. You can totally tell that Ruth and I are part of the crowd just from listening. Can’t you? CAN’T YOU??!!
All of the musical resources that you need so that your community can My Redeemer Lives in your worship are available on the Resound Website.
