| Matt Boswell and Matt Papa – His mercy is more | Review

On the surface.. These two men have written some (underated IMO) crackers over the last few years. Some you may be aware of like ‘His mercy is More’ and ‘Christ the sure and steady anchor’, others maybe not so much. This album redoes some of the best, in new arrangements,…
