On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Keith and Kristyn Getty join us to talk about their upcoming event on April 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. On Maundy Thursday, CRPC will hold a Night of Worship with renowned performing artists and 2023 Grammy nominees, Keith and Kristyn Getty. The Gettys have been called the “preeminent” hymn writers of this generation and "have changed the way evangelicals worship”. You can expect to hear all the most popular modern hymn renditions made famous by the Gettys.
On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, David and Barbara Leeman, authors of the book, Our Hymns, Our Heritage, join us to talk about the Hymns of Easter. Many people love hymns because they can sing them by memory at any time in any place. The Leemans share in their book, "Hymns declare what we believe about God, so it is very important when singing to think about what the words mean for your life." As believers, on Easter Sunday we will sing with praise and thanks in our hearts, "Christ the Lord is Risen Today!"
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, they have created a catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition which are sung the world over. They’re best known for “In Christ Alone,” along with the popular U.S. recording, Awaken The Dawn and Joy – An Irish Christmas. The Gettys' hymns are used increasingly both in contemporary and traditional circles, being included in most modern hymnbooks (with a number of these now listing “Getty” as the most-featured composers), while in the more contemporary church, more than 60 of their songs are featured on top 2,000 CCLI charts between the UK and USA. The Gettys live between Northern Ireland and Nashville with their four daughters.
David and Barbara Leeman founded Hosanna Hymnals to introduce classic songs of the church to a new generation. Barbara taught private piano and classroom music, serving twenty-three years at Providence Christian School of Texas. David served for over forty years as minister of music and worship at churches in California, Oregon, Illinois and Texas. Both are graduates of Biola University School of Music. Barbara earned teaching credentials from the University of Oregon and Dave a Master’s degree in choral conducting from California State University in Fullerton. The Leemans have four grown children who love hymns and twelve grandchildren who are learning to love them!
