I enjoy listening to good music and the new self-titled album from Evensong Rising definitely falls in that category. It is a album of worship songs with a mix of styles. They are tied together with an overall laid back feel.
- Alleluia is a catchy song of praise. I found myself getting lost in the rolling melody.
- Stand Firm has an edgier blues/rock feel with smoky vocals.
- Lyrical guitar and keyboard introduce Satisfied
- The lilting rhythm of Unto Him was soothing.
- Make Us New Again is a reminder that God promises to be our God and we promise to be God’s people – the covenant between God and humans
- Doxology ’07 is a good remix on an old favorite
- Rise Up brings a little reggae beat to the mix of the CD
- Salvation comes is a smooth jam with lyrics of confession and call for God
- Jazzy and smooth Holy Spirit
- Pentecost is a beautiful call for the Holy Spirit’s presence – rhythmic, melodic and strong
While a couple of the tracks, like Solid Rock, are a bit sing songy this is overall a great album. The music is not particularly earth shattering, but it moves the listener into a smooth rhythm of worship. I am going to pass this along to the music staff here at Resurrection and recommend it to you as well.
