Keith & Kristyn Getty

Our music minister introduced us to the music of Keith and Kristyn Getty after hearing them at a conference, and we have come to love this couple and their music. They could best be described as modern-day hymn writers, with "In Christ Alone" being the most widely sung and recorded.

From their website: "Who is creating the next generation of hymns for the Church? And greater still, has the unique formula of the hymn been abandoned on the back pew of the praise & worship movement? Irish composers and artists Keith & Kristyn Getty don't believe so, and they're on a mission to revive the art of hymnody for a new generation."

Some of my other favorites are: The Power of the Cross, See What a Morning, Hear the Call of the Kingdom, and Beneath the Cross. Reading the words of their hymns is like a devotional in itself. I encourage you to check out their website and learn more about them: http://www.gettymusic.com/
