CD: Songburst (The NewSong Group)


3 in stock


Lively songs and hymns “with a beat” performed by a varied group, from solos to chorus, in the United Kingdom. Imaginative band instrumentals and upbeat styling make this a bright, happy CD for all ages to sing along with. Perfect for kids, young adults, and those looking for fresh, new music for familiar hymns. The NewSong Group.

From their website:

“Hallelujah! Sing to God a brand new song, praise him in the company of all who love him. Let [everyone] celebrate their Sovereign Creator…” (Psalm 149, ‘The Message’ translation)

These verses capture the energy and joy we’ve felt in writing and performing these hymns with our friends. The core of The Newsong Group is Andrew D. Brewis. Airlie Scott and Tamsin Bland, three friends who’ve enjoyed making music together for years, but for this first recording project we drew in singers from three generations, a range of musicians, and the compositional and mentoring talents of Tamsin’s mum, Fenella Bennetts. After the album was launched in 2007, we know these songs were sung in Sunday Schools, churches and youth gatherings all over the world, and this spurred us on to produce three more albums and an EP.
