9781622493104: Modern Hymns from Ancient Words

With Accompanying CD. Intro Note from the Composer and Lyricist. This hymnal grew out of the fact that, after I wrote my first three books, many people asked me if I wrote poetry, and I had to tell them that I do not, although I enjoy reading it in doses. At other times, different people had asked me if I ever write music. I had tried writing the alma mater song for my undergraduate university a few years back, but then discovered that they already had one dating all of the way to 1929, so I was beaten by over 80 years! Nevertheless, I decided to take up the challenge of doing both, music composition and lyric writing all in one, and I chose to focus on the Old Testament, since my first three books had dealt primarily with different denominations of Christianity, and as I took several classes on the history of the Old Testament as an undergraduate. There is also a need for new church music, especially for the youth. While this work is told mostly from a Christian perspective, I am working on a possible sequel for the New Testament for some point in the very distant future. Todd J. Barry
