Free Music

Free church type music that is. Cardiphonia (Lt., heart music) is a collaboration of different songwriters “for the joy and benefit of the church”. This site provide variously themed, theologically related music, free for you to download. “Songs For The Supper”, obviously, is music related to the eucharist.

Like much new church music I’m hearing these days, it’s more acoustic, more mellow, less electronic, more theologically rooted and Biblical words. It’s interesting to me that this new brand of music is more liturgically relevant than the recent trend of Praise & Worship music. I don’t recall any P&W music being Kyries, Agnus Deis, etc. I’m not sure, but it may mark a turn toward corporate, rather than individual spirituality, a growing appreciation for the church, the body of Christ.

In any case, enjoy this. I think you’ll be hearing more of it in the future.
