Irish Hymn Writers Launch Debut Recording
The US debut recording of In Christ Alone from Irish modern hymn writers Keith & Kristyn Getty will be available at Christian and mainstream retail outlets on 28 August.
Produced by Keith Getty and John Andrew Schreiner (Fernando Ortega, City On A Hill) In Christ Alone features the Gettys' renditions of 10 of their best-loved hymns, including "The Power of the Cross" and the title cut, both co-written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend.
Quickly becoming a standard in churches across the world, "In Christ Alone" has been recorded by Natalie Grant, Avalon and the Newsboys, among others, and included on more than 100 recordings to date.
In Christ Alone also features Keith & Kristyn Getty's current single, "There Is A Higher Throne". The song was one of the most added at Inspirational radio for the week of July 16, according to R&R.
"As Kristyn and I pursue our mission to create modern hymns for a new generation, we have been so encouraged by the response which the In Christ Alone album has received," said Keith Getty. "The project marks the first time Kristyn and I have recorded most of these songs ourselves, and it will always hold a very special place in our hearts."
The Gettys' appearances have included The Pentagon, National Religious Broadcasters convention, Gospel Music Week, the Evangelical Press Association convention, Focus on the Family, Moody Bible Institute and events surrounding the National Prayer Breakfast. They have also performed at churches, universities and worship conferences across the country.
