I love "Awesome God" also. I was very blessed to meet Rich at the Indianapolis Indiana airport. (made a total goof of myself telling him how much I like his music) He was eating an Ice Cream cone and I didn't let him get a word in edge wise (that's just me) he just nodded and ate his ice cream regardless Rich seemed like a very nice person. Glad for him that he got to go home, sorry for the rest of us sad.gif

Raven! You are too funny! I laughed at this story cause that would have been me! Glad you had the opportunity to meet such a gifted man.

Raven, I think one reason Rich Mullins didn't answer you is because he was just a simple man and never got into the hipe of being famous or enjoyed hearing praises of himself. Now if you would have started talking about the weather or helping children, etc.---you and he would have probably had a real long conversation. People I know met him after one of his concerts and he went their book store to sign autographs for 30 minutes, but when he saw a banner they had put up which read "Our God is Awesome" he totally freaked out and got all excited. He stopped signing autographs and played his hammerd dulcimer and sang for everyone in that tiny book store for two hours. He had just finished performing a two hour concert earlier. I was in college at the time, so I missed it. The lady I know said he was such a humble and down to earth person.

Peace,

That is one thing I loved about Rich, he's simplicity and down to earth nature. I loved to hear him play the hammer dulcimer, such an incredible instrument. I would definately agree with the fact he was one of the greatest poets of this generation. Each song was thought provoking and struck a cord deep in my soul. In the presence of Rich Mullins I would have babbled on too. biggrin.gif

I'm sure we would have had a long conversation had I not come up and attacked right after he took a huge bite of Ice cream (he was actually physically unabel to do more than nod and then it occured to me that he might like to eat his ice cream in peace tongue.gif ) He seemed genuinely glad to meet me.

Besides being an awesome poet, Rich was also a wonderful writer of prose. I have a collection of his columns He wrote between 1991-1996 for Release magazine in his column entitled, "Play It Again." He had great insights and perspectives about faith, life, and human-nature. It is where I get my quotes in my signature.

I like Gospel music. I've always liked the old gospel. I've never cared much for the new christian rocknroll. I've always thought christian music should be different than what I would call worldly music.

Hey, I love the old greats too.

But I want to remind you that a lot of the old hyms were set to the popular music of their day. Meaning they took some popular music sung in pubs and taverns and changed the words to religious verses. So during that time, many (religious) people were shocked at the blazen sacrelige.

But also love what God is doing new within his body in regards to Christian music. God created music, and He is very diverse---just look at nature.

I am a big fan of Eden's Bridge. They are a Celtic band from the British Isles. Someone from my Gaelic group is wanting to sell her CD as it is not her cup of tea. so I offered to buy it from her! Can't wait to get it! It is a praise and worship Celtic CD. Cool, eh?

aklassie, I agree that the old gospel songs are great, but I also see nothing wrong with the new music! Many times in the Psalms we are told to "sing a NEW song" unto the Lord! I think the Lord finds joy in our creativity, otherwise why would He inspire so many people to write new songs? It is only natural that we as humans would be inspired by the music that we hear around us. In Jesus' days He would have listened to Jewish hymns. As much as I love Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art, they just weren't around in Jesus' days! And if Christian music didn't change with the times, we would not have such gems today! We would STILL be listening to the same Jewish-inpired music! So why should musical style suddenly stop and sound only like those songs written in the 1700s or 1800s or early 1900s?

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to put you down or your opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect yours. There are types of Christian music out there that I don't like. I'm not crazy about the Christian Rap music or the music that sounds like heavy metal, or even Southern Gospel! But I am so glad that our God is big enough that He has inspired these people to write such music for those that DO like it! Otherwise, rather than seeking the Gospel inspired variety, those who like these types of music would just turn to the worldly variety and forget all about God! Rather than hearing a rap song about the love of God, they could be listeneing to something like "Cop Killer!"

Just MHO.... smile.gif

I don't know what made me do it, but i was day dreaming today after Mass and wondered what happened to all of the beautiful OLD OLD Marian Hymns that we used to sing when we were in May Crowning processions in the late 50's and 60's? You know what I mean, the ones that made your grandma and mom cry? I always relate those songs with the smells of spring, lilacs and hyacinth. I also remember my class mates girls with fancy white dresses and communion veils, and my buddies and me with our white long-sleeved shirts and red ties, smelling of Vitalis.

Anyway now that I've layed out the picture...(I'm OLD!)

I searched the Internet and found some MIDIs with some old songs that I'd forgotten: "On this Day O Beautiful Mother" "Tis the Month of Our Mother" and "Bring Flowers of the Rarest.." What a walk down memory lane it was!

Anybody else remember those?
Chuck

I'm getting in way late in this thread...

I guess I prefer the more traditional hymns like "Amazing Grace" and the Celtic/Celtic-inspired hymns like "Lord of The Dance".

At my parish, it's the same songs every year for May Crowning: "Hail Mary, Gentle Woman", "Immaculate Mary", and "Hail, Holy Queen". "Hail Mary, Gentle Woman" is my favorite of those three, but "Immaculate Mary" sounds nice with a childrens' choir.

Wisard, you said it better than I did. That was what I was trying to say. I have nothing against new christian music. It's the rapping and such that "I" don't like.
I'm not saying it wrong for others. I respect others and the music they like.

Aklassie, I knew you weren't downing other styles of Christian music or others for listening to them. I just wanted you to give other styles a chance...who knows you might like some of them. I personally do not like rap music even Christian rap music. So I guess we are all different. 'Vive le differance!'

I wish our church would play some of the old hyms once in a while. What was old will become new again to a new generation. Especially "How Great Thou Art!" My belief is don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Just because times are changing we shouldn't throw away the old classic standards---but keep them right along with the new.
