Old Hymns New Ways
Old Hymns in New Ways.
(This is my story, this is my song)
By Esther Church (composer of 'Shepherd Songs, Psalm 23', used at the Big Sing, Spires, May 2013)
Over recent years many folks, including recording artists, have rediscovered or returned to the doctrinal and musical richness and heritage found in the hymnody of church history....many others it could be said, never lost them....
In April, on Saturday the 26th of April, in The Spires Centre, Belfast, we hope to gather together singers and musicians to enjoy some of these great hymns and texts in musical and hopefully artistic contexts; doing exactly as it says on the tin, I mean title, taking old hymns and using them in newer ways.
