Get up close & personal with Keith and Kristyn Getty who’ve written or co-written dozens of powerful and popular hymns sung in churches around the world. They’ll share the inspiration for their album, Facing a Task Unfinished, and their passion to inspire a revival of congregational singing in the church. Join Nancy Turner, with the Gettys on this week’s This is the Day podcast.
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. To further expand this modern hymn movement, Keith and Kristyn Getty have created the Getty Music record label (which holds 3 Dove Award nominations and is distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution), built various print publishing partnerships and imprints, and produced unique merchandise containing their hymn lyrics. The label will release its first collection of songs and hymns for families in 2016.
