A few weeks ago I recorded a song for a new “flash mob” compilation. Basically, a bunch of musicians and worship leaders around the country wrote songs inspired by the Hallel psalms (Ps. 113-118) which were traditionally sung around Passover. So the disciples and Jesus would have sung them at the Last Supper. It is remarkable to me that, with all the years I’ve read the Bible, I still forget how it all ties together.
Anyway. Once again, for this compilation I rewrote the melody for an old hymn based on Psalm 118. We recorded the bones of the song (all of my parts) in two hours one morning, and Nathan added in extra instrumentation later that day. Having to work around childcare for the kids definitely makes things interesting!
Had a lot of fun re-writing and recording this. Hope you enjoy it!
