NYC RUF Album Liner Notes – Tom Cannon

Here’s a great quote from Tom Cannon, RUF Pastor at NYU whose RUF group produced one of the earlier Retuned Hymn albums – this was released just after the first Indelible Grace album.

Tom Cannon, RUF Pastor NYC, (From “From Depths of Woe” CD, 2000)
“What is offered here are songs that convey the tradition and immediacy of the church and its music. Most of the songs are hymns and psalms that are part of a rich heritage – signposts that remind us that the Holy Spirit has been at work long before this generation; songs steeped in theological and poetic integrity. The music is newer, much of it composed in recent years by RUF students from around the country.
These are not submitted as the last, best or only word on music in the church, a functional arrogance that plagues much present-day Christian music culture. Rather, they are a way, ever feeble, to join the song that will go on forever.”
