There are an amazing amount of new projects out right now – tis the season! Sharing a few below that I’ve been able to listen to and think you’ll find beneficial to your devotional/liturgical life!
 Quiet Hymns – Matthew Smith
Matthew has been releasing albums for a number of years both with Indelible Grace and as a solo artist. This is certainly his most mature record to date and one that finds him carving out his own aesthetic. Check out chart|mp3 for congregational singing!

 Songs for Sunday – Resound Worship
From resound worship – “In a break from many worship albums, we’ve built the tracks using a palette that reflects the musical line-up found in real churches…” and with an album structure that follows a broadly intentional liturgical structure. You can find more liturgical resources around this project at the resound worship site.
