December Update

January 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

For the first time this year – I (Andy) have attempted writing a Christmas worship song, in conjunction with my friend Stephen Mayes, from Belfast, who has just joined us here at Rechord Music. If I’m being completely honest, it was a strangely difficult process! So much so that the song itself wasn’t ready to introduce into live worship in our church contexts before we recorded a studio version.

The difficulty, I believe, came from trying to write a song that tells some of the narrative story of Christmas, the incarnation of Jesus, while simultaneously inspiring us to lift our gaze onto our God, the same Jesus, in worship. So many of the best carols do this so well and yet achieving all of the above, whilst keeping the melody simple, is really challenging.

Earlier this month we spent some time in the studio together recording the track so that you could hear the results before Christmas. If you haven’t heard ‘Your Light Has Come’ yet then check it out.

 

 

In other news we’re pleased to announce that we will once again be broadcasting a 24 hour live stream; Rechord Live 24. More details will be available in the new year, but we are really excited to be running this event again. Last year was a huge success and we’ve had many, many requests to repeat it and we are more than happy to oblige. Stay tuned for more after the festive period.

Speaking of which, this will be our last blog post for 2016 and all of us here at Rechord would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We hope you have a restful and relaxing holiday and may the Lord Jesus bless you with peace this Christmas as we remember the amazing miracle that is Immanuel, God with us.

See you in 2017!
