Way back in a dusty old post (June of last year… Sheesh!) we told you about a project we were starting with a small church just down the street. It’s been a drawn out project with a lot of starts and stops – and more stops, but we’re nearing the end – the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Last week we finished editing and started first static mixes of the eight original songs. I thought I’d post a couple snippets of these first draft mixes for your listening pleasure.
These are songs that this church has used in their worship services and we’re working with them to get you a free download or two or three… – plus charts – when the project is finished. The CD is scheduled to release in early November and I must say that I’ve grown close to many of these songs.
First up is Bound To Thee, a simple statement in a simple song – so we kept the arrangement very simple. I think it works well with the song.
Bound To Thee
And now for something completely different…. Holy Lamb of Sacrifice is built on a chord structure similar to Hotel California, but unlike the Eagles tune the lyrics are straightforward with no guessing needed about the subject. It’s also much more of an uptempo song. They wanted this arrangement to feel almost like a gallop, and I think we’ve succeeded here.
