The Hymns Project: We Have An Anchor Cd
Publisher: Essential Christian
Colin Webster & Phil Moore have several things in commonâ¦ they love the Lord, they love music and they love hymnsâ¦ so Essential Christian are delighted that they're offering their own contributions to the second album in The Hymns Project series. This bespoke compilation gathers together their most-loved hymns and reinforces the reasons why they are popular worship leaders at the Keswick convention. Flowing, inspirational and memorable melodies abound alongside theologically rich and poetic lyrics. For example: 'We Have An Anchor' is a re-working of anthemic hymn 'Will Your Anchor Hold', where the original chorus line remains, but with an added fresh melody and words to the verses. 'O The Depth And The Height' was inspired by Romans 11:33 and expresses how Jesus is the pearl of great price, our greatest treasure in this life and beyond. And the beautiful 'Be Merciful' was written as a paraphrase of Psalm 67 by early 19th Century English hymn writer Josiah Conder, who played a significant political role in the early stages of the Abolition of Slavery around the world. This hymn is a wonderful prayer for God to be made known to the nations. This is an excellent album for personal devotions but also, a great resource for worship teams and choirs. There is also a songbook for the album with piano-vocal scores and song notes. Colin & Phil write... 'Hymns contain theologically rich lyrics with diverse themes and qualities that are largely absent in many modern songs, this is why we are drawn to them. But sometimes fresh arrangements and melodies can breathe new life into old hymns and make them more appealing to the next generation. We appreciate some people may not like their favourite hymns being 'tampered with' but the truth is, many of the 'old melodies' were not the original melodies at all. That being said, we hope you find our arrangements sympathetically crafted, so as to add and not take away from the authors' original purpose which is, to glorify God.'
