I just discovered (via a friend) a fantastic Catholic band -- Marian Grace. Their album Marian Grace is being released soon, and Ignatius Press has agreed to promote it. The arrangements of traditional hymns and chants are refreshing in that they eschew the need to make Christian music "contemporary." Rather, the music is just hauntingly beautiful.
Imagine if Michaelangelo's murals, or the cathedrals of Europe were "modern." This is a criticism I've had for a while about Christian music. Christian artists shouldn't be building malls, but cathedrals. Marian Grace pulls that off.comments powered by Disqus
