When listening to old hymns, we see how much thought and care was put into writing and composing music in the years gone by. For me, I developed an appreciation for hymns while I was in boarding school in Ooty, India – where we would sing these beautiful hymns and I used to be amazed at the how much we could learn from these songs. It was always a dream of mine to make an album someday, and I’m so glad I could do it by re-singing some of these beautiful hymns. For more details on the hymns, their stories and why we selected these particular hymns, do check the respective song pages.

Ancient

The oldest of the hymns chosen for this album were two hymns written in the 1600s. How amazing that we can still sing the same tunes and the same words from hundreds of years ago, and it can still speak to us.

Contemplative

As you listen to this album, use it in your time of meditation where you can listen to the beautifully crafted lyrics and music as they either lament or praise God just as the psalmist does in the book of Psalms.

Unadorned

Imagine you and I were sitting around a bonfire and singing together – that’s exactly what we want you to feel like as you listen to the songs in this album. Raw, real music that focuses on the joys and sorrows of life and how we deal with it through the help of God. .
