After some quality Christian music to listen to? Aussie group “Sons of Korah” could be for you.
We’ve been listening to a “Sons of Korah” song at church every Sunday before our Bible reading for the January “Psalms – Songs of the King” series. Largely acoustic-guitar-and-vocals based, they put Psalms to music. And with 6 albums up their sleeve so far, they’ve learned to do a good job of it too. Acoustic guitars and vocals are often backed up with strings, percussion, drums, piano, and ethnic-influenced sounds. They’re great musicians.
The album to start with would be “Resurrection“. It’s a collection of Psalms that try to capture the tension of living in a fallen, cursed world – but with the hope of the resurrection ahead. These are Psalms written amidst that tension, crying out to God. My personal favourite is the song “Looking for God” (based on Psalm 69), which you can find on our featured items page. The album has some great artwork.
Personally I enjoy listening to “Sons of Korah” at home or when I go for a walk, and I know I’m not the only one in our Church family who listens to them when I find it hard to pray, praying along with the words.
“Sons of Korah” – Psalms to music. A good way to make God’s word more a part of your life. Go on, splurge.
