Music downloading poll

I just posted this straw poll on my BookFace page, and would appreciate your answers: 1) Do you regularly download free music (legally – e.g. noisetrade, bandcamp)? 2) Do you regularly buy music downloads? 3a) If not, why not? 3b) If yes, do you regularly download (free or paid) albums, singles or both? 4) If you also stream music (legally – e.g. Spotify) would you […]

Some crowdfunding albums to support

Crowdfunding has really opened up the doors for church songwriters. Grassroots and local songwriters have access to the means of getting their work ‘out there’, and I personally a big fan (fund others as you would have them fund you!), and have already blogged about projects which I’ve supported in the past. In this post I want to highlight a couple of projects which are currently […]

New EP from Zac Hicks: ‘His be the victor’s name’

A little while back one of my favourite bloggers, Zac Hicks, and a team from his church, brought out a great EP of congregational worship songs. Zac was kind enough to send me a copy. The EP has a couple of originals and a couple of hymn retunes. Serious points are won by the opening track which starts with a massive organ introduction using Bach’s […]

‘We will proclaim’ from Falls Church Anglican

One of the things which stops me quitting Facebook (as I have the frequent urge to do) is the Liturgy Fellowship group.

One […]

Alessandro on CD ready for pre-order!

We were great, as the blurb says: With an outstanding cast: […]

Downhere

I liked the first album from Downhere with songs like Great are you and Protest to Praise, but then didn’t really come across them again, until recently, when I got their latest two albums on a twitter special (I also posted their brilliant Christmas song How many kings). From the latest album Ending is beginning is a brilliant song called All at war: I’m learning […]

Risen

Sovereign Grace have been faithfully and creatively serving the church for many years, providing songs for congregational singing that are not only full of solid doctrine, but also full of singable melodies that inspire joy in the heart. I’ve really been enjoying their new album Risen, which, as the title suggests is all about the resurrection of Christ, and what that means for the believer. There […]
