Timeless Collection - The Hymn Writers CD
THE KINGSWAY TRUST
The cornerstone of a classic Hymn is its word's. They weave together a tapestry of ingredients, which may include magnifying the triune God or bursting forth with praise and all this needs to be neatly encased in a sound theological tradition.
The words need to be in poetical form, which in turn can challenge the intellectual abilities of the greatest scholars yet still be able to permeate the hearts and minds of small children.
The Hymn-poem now requires the skilled hand of the composer bringing musical life to the piece, establishing various dynamics that will communicate the words of the Hymn at an even deeper level and engrave them firmly in our lives.
The Hymn Writers through the centuries have built these towering monuments of worship that are now the very foundation of our Church heritage. They are sung in services around the world and even infiltrate global events such as The London Olympics 2012 where 3 Hymns found their way into the powerful opening ceremony.
This series celebrates "The Hymn Writers" with all new recordings featuring The Coventry Singers conducted by Paul Leddington Wright and includes a booklet with Hymn Writer Biography and full lyrics.
Mission Worship supports the work of Ray of Hope:
Ray of Hope seeks to transform the lives of children and families living in the villages scattered along the edge of the River Amazon in Brazil. Every week in remote parts of Brazil, the Ray of Hope team takes to the river to meet the needs of the children of the Amazon, bringing love to villages in very practical ways, by holding KidÕs clubs, working with children with special needs and helping young mothers tend to the needs of their children.
Ray of Hope have been supporting families, providing food, clothing and medical care and are now strategically building schools, improving literacy by introducing the National schools curriculum in remote locations for these people.
