Sojourn Music – Watts hymns on ‘Over the Grave’

Sojourn Music is getting ready to release their second CD of songs inspired by the hymns of Isaac Watts.  In anticipation of that we’re going to walk through the hymns on the first CD and see what all they have covered so far. I’ll link to all of the original hymn texts on Hymnary so you can see how they are working through each text in their adaptations.  These CD’s are testaments to the gospel in song and its well worth meditating on the original text as you listen to Sojourn’s great arrangements.

Here is a tracklist review by Bobby Giles from Sojourn for CD #1

Order the CD HERE
