My current favorite music
When I was a teenager, I adored Sandi Patti. I wanted to be Sandi Patti. I also loved listening to Steve Green. I actually had the opportunity to meet him and his brother and Buddy Greene. I am convinced that no matter how much hypocrisy there is in CCM, Steve Green is a good guy who really loves God.
But as I grow older in time and in the Lord, my tastes are changing. I like ensembles and choirs more than soloists.
So here's what I choose to listen to.
The Marshall Family.
I don't care for all of it. I'm not real fond of girly quartets. But I like a lot of it. They write a lot of their own stuff, and play a bunch of instruments. What I like to do is to be alone, crank up the volume and sing along.
If you're new to the Marshalls, I suggest you buy the Collections, so that you get 2 albums in one. Its a good deal.
Glory of your Presence
He gives me Joy
Be thou my Vision
They also have a fabulous Christmas album with old and new songs. They include some real oldies I had never heard of, but are great, like "Once in Royal David's City". They also have a song from Elizabeth's perspective called "And he leaped for Joy" Very nice.
They also have 2 Spanish albums, for which we are grateful.
Have a great Lord's day!
