Time and time again the scripture tells us to sing a ‘new song’ to the Lord. This tells us that every new generation needs to write and create it’s own music and this merged with our Welsh heritage, and most importantly inhabited with the spirit, will bring wildfire in our midst.
SOW is all about making music for our King of kings – gathering together with all manner of people to worship God – for this love is so amazing – it really does demand our all. We want to seek God for the sound of Wales, rooted in our heritage but defined by our Saviour. The old Celtic sound merged with a new sound relevant for today. We want our lyrics to be full of depth and truth – unveiling Christ in all his fullness. Wales is known as the land of hymns – and these hymns are distillations of the richest truths of God – set to music. We aim to write with richness, exhortation and praise in view of our awesome Gods grace.
