All the years I have listened to that - and never realised it was the Lord's Prayer....

It took me a while to realise too, despite my masterful and fluent command of Swahili ... /cough  :wink:

In keeping with posting upbeat Christian (but accessible!) music:

As a one time addict of Civ, I didn't mind the 'bumph'  . . . it took me back.  

Really enjoyed the clip, thanks Shaft.  Our worship leaders are African and we're often treated to some wonderful musical harmonies with the flavour of Africa.  

*Ahem* and I will say that all music belongs to the Lord, even when I'm singing 'Apple bottom jeans, boots with the furrr . . .'  :lol:

When I was in a church choir a few years ago (pre kids - more time), we did some African harmonies and repetative hymns as part of our Easter one year - some of them were incredibly beautiful, and it was lovely to sing tradtional phrases in a different languages in layered harmonies.

oh oh - just seen this thread and would have said something earlier. So making up for lost time...

Modern worship music will be replaced by more modern worship music with a few remaining as classics, just like hymns of 100 years ago have mainly disappeared.

My bet is that not much Kendrick will survive the test of time, but Stuart Townsend/Paul Getty will. "Jesus be the centre" because it is simple and sounds good in many different arrangements is a sure bet too.

But outside church I am falling deeper and deeper in love with Orthodox Church music from the Russian/Ukranian tradition - all unaccompanied, ranging from simple chants to gloriously rich works by people like Rachmaninov. In fact his Vespers (All Night Vigil) is a good place to start. Like Andy I have this on my phone and listen to it often on the way to work - well recommend this work.

Also love Bach, and of Bach St Matthew Passion is sublime, a towering peak, nay Everest of western music... everything else is really in its foothills.

This is one of my current favourites, Gregorio Allegri's Miserere mei:

Harry Christopher's "The Sixteen" do a sublime version.

Absolutely - it's one of the most beautiful works in existence. If you liked that, you'll love his Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, op. 31. (And that link is to the version I have, by the Kansas City Chorale). Wondrously lovely. The Cherubic Hymn at the end of disc one is beautiful beyond my power to describe.
