These Songs We Sing: Reflections on the Hymns We Have Loved
These reflections are about finding a place within these old songs that offer a glimpse into who we were, who we are, and who we can be. These hymns inspire us, baffle us, warm our hearts, remind us of people and places long gone, and ultimately provide guidance for those who sing them whether we adhere to the faith in which they are found or not. These are songs that can fill us with joy, purpose, and hope. They are the hymns we’ve loved. These are the songs we sing.
The book emerged from Klassen’s music blog, The Hymn Project, for which she created and recorded piano arrangements for these beloved hymns, one every week for a year. Her new book develops some of the accompanying reflections included in the original blog posts, and provides a wonderful companion to the recordings
Carla Klassen has taken on a self-motivated spiritual journey; one hymn per week for a year. She covers a wide spectrum in the lexicon of hymnody with astute observations, personal sharing, pertinent historical context, and storytelling. Each chapter ends with a testimony to God’s grace and gentle encouragement to the reader. This study would make an ideal devotional guide. —Dr. Larry Nickel CEO of Cypress Choral Music Publishing
