In honor of the season of Lent (which I will be blogging about tomorrow and perhaps in the weeks to come), I want to encourage you all to check out this new album released by Page CXVI entitled Lent to Maundy Thursday. The album is part of their Church Calendar Project in which they asked themselves :
how do we with music walk through the liturgical church calendar, in essence pulling ancient themes of faith forward through music. Which we do a lot in writings and theology, but I haven’t seen as much of it happen in music. So we really wanted to have worship and music elements to offer ourselves, and our communities and the church, so they can celebrate these seasons not just with sermons but with songs. (Read the whole interview here: http://reel-gospel.com/2014/03/04/interview-page-cxvi-lent-to-maundy-thursday/)
Their music continues to impress and stretch me. Maybe it can do the same for you!
