Twelve Simple Hymns

I should point out, for folks who appreciate such things, a link to a free download of Twelve Simple Hymns.

It’s the music from the 2014 Bishop’s Cathedral Convention here in Canberra, but is recorded by some friends from my previous church in Sydney, which is a weird overlap of worlds (and it was only when my previous church put up the link on their Facebook page that I realised the connection, because an email was sent around with a link at work on the last day before I went on leave and I hadn't got around to listening till now). So, if you like simple acoustic music, you might enjoy this. It perhaps only happens inside my own peculiar head, but when the piano intro to Here is Love starts playing, I expect it to turn into Bridge over Troubled Waters, which I haven't listened to for years, so I’m hearing “When you’re weary, feeling small, Here is Love, vast as the ocean ...”. That sort of works.

nice. Streamed it while working away. Have you listened to an album called 'the builder and the architect' by Sandra McCraken?

I haven't no. Perhaps it is another one to add to the list.

I love the lyrics of this song of hers and the tamborine riff. I literally have come home from the weariness of work and the world and just flopped on the couch and soaked this is in. It is called thy mercy they god
