My Cry Ascends

That’s the name of a new album being sold by Ligonier Ministries. You can listen to samples of the songs HERE. It is predominately psalms, but also includes a number of hymns. Here is the blurb from the website:

My Cry Ascends is a graceful collection of new Psalms and hymns for the church composed by Greg Wilbur. The music is recorded in a folk tradition with elements of Celtic style and southern harmony. Listeners will enjoy the hardy musical instrumentation: piano, viola, flutes, tin whistle, acoustic guitar, mandolin, bagpipe, hammer dulcimer and percussion. Rich biblical texts and expressive tunes feature the singing of Michael Card, Steve Green, Wes King, Katy Snow, Nathan Clark George and Bruce Carroll. The songs were written with congregational singing in mind, and it is our hope that this CD will bring these wonderful pieces into wider familiarity as an appropriate offering to the Most High God as He calls His people into worship.

Maybe it’s because I’m preaching on Psalm 77 Sunday (a cry ascending psalm), but it is great to see some modern versions of psalms being produced creatively and with music excellence. And, personally, I really like the style of the music. It sounds well worth picking up. I believe it can only be bought through Ligonier.
