Our new album “Canticles” has finally arrived. The songs have all been herded together and gathered into the bandcamp fold for your listening and worshipping pleasure. You now have 26 songs inspired by the biblical canticles to guide you through the advent and Christmas seasons (and beyond).
Here is a little bit about all of the artists who contributed. Please check them out and support the many albums that they have produced on their own!
Also, a side hug thanks to Mike Cosper and the Songs for the Book of Luke album. There are a number of songs on this compilation that were originally conceived for that project. I’m grateful for bearing a harvest I didn’t sow (Psalm 126).
