| 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,…

Psalm Singing – where to begin?

My palms were sweaty. The congregation was small. I was about to have my first ‘experience’. I grew up in the contemporary evangelical Anglican world, which had long since lost the tradition of Psalm singing: the hymns of Watts and Wesley (and later Kendrick, Redman, Getty, Hillsong et al) were…

A day in the life of an apprentice

I recently learned from my boss that I got my place on the Music Apprenticeship Scheme on the strength of being able to tune a guitar successfully. What he didn’t know of course, was that was about as far as my guitar skills extended. Thankfully however over the course of…

| CityAlight – Yet not I | Review

On the surface.. Cityalight manage to walk the line between the Getty-ish hymns style that my parents love, and a more contemporary feel that appeals to the younger generation too.  This is a great EP, uplifting, strong vocals and a good mix of upbeat and thoughtful. It covers a range…

| Hillsong Worship – There is more | Review

On the surface Soaring melodies, strong vocals, synths and guitars galore, and the ability to make you feel something (even if you're not sure what that something is..!).  A great album for singing in the car or while cooking the dinner. Background Hillsong is a bit of a mix of…
