Book review: Then Sings My Soul

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

By Robert Morgan
Published by Thomas Nelson 

my view:
      This book is the third of a series, and is my current favorite. Just like the first two in this series, the book has thick textured pages that give it a vintage feel. More modern songs that I recognize as well as older hymns are included in this collection. I've chosen a few of the songs included for my children to learn and share on their instruments. It is interesting to read about the lives of the songwriters. Some of my favorites are the newer ones by Stuart Townend that sound like they were made from old hymns, but are in fact new. The author also shares about gospel hymns being shared as contemporary praise songs. There are songs included too that are almost 2000 years old. 

from the publisher:
     "The long-awaited third installment! In 2003, Robert Morgan released what would become a future classic for over a million readers, a unique book entitled Then Sings My Soul. This collection of the world’s greatest hymns and the stories behind them stirred an entire generation to better understand the heritage of our faith through song.

Now, in the long-awaited third volume of this series, Morgan expands his material to include the great history of worship, the first biblical hymns, biographical sketches of the most interesting composers, and almost 60 generations of hymn singing. The new book also includes a collection of the greatest hymns you’ve never heard, with lead-sheets included.

All of this is in addition to even more standard hymns and the stories of the composers behind them.

Morgan’s conclusion guides the reader into enjoying all of God’s music, blending the old and the new into a symphony of praise that keeps the worship alive for a new generation."
