Bringing classical technique and lush orchestra arrangements into a pop presentation, Grace Worship continues their work of creating songs that unite generations with its fresh re-imagining of Kings Kaleidoscope’s hymn, “All Glory Be To Christ.”
“This brilliant hymn has been a personal favorite of mine ever since its first release,” says Grace Worship Director Kevin King, who leads the song along with Nashville-based singer/songwriter Carlos Santiago and a full choir and orchestra. “Its rich lyrical content paired with the timeless tune of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ reminds the listener of God’s faithfulness through each new year and points us to a day when all his promises become reality.”
The live video was recorded in the TrailSide Event Center in Peoria Heights, IL, and is the title track to a two-single project releasing Nov. 20 from Grace Worship / The Fuel Music. Pairing theologically rich lyrics with soaring melodies, Grace Worship reimagines two beloved Christmas hymns for the recording: “All Glory Be To Christ” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” The new recordings reflect a modern musical expression while simultaneously drawing from the 150-year church history at Grace Presbyterian Church. The songs are further meant to remind listeners that there is more hope in Jesus than there is despair in our world.los Santiago and a full choir and orchestra. “Its rich lyrical content paired with the timeless tune of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ reminds the listener of God’s faithfulness through each new year and points us to a day when all his promises become reality.”
The new music from Grace Worship follows its Worship Leader– featured debut EP Christ Be All that released earlier this year. The recording honors the rich heritage of Christian hymnody while incorporating modern anthemic choruses and pop hooks.
Grace Worship is the worship ministry of Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Peoria, IL, that is passionate about making the gospel known through song and story. Before Jesus went to the cross, He prayed that His church would be one (John 17). Grace Worship desires to write and share songs that advance this mission through theologically rich and creatively beautiful art. By pulling from the heritage of Christian hymnody and integrating the church songs of today, the worship team hopes to make much of Jesus’ unifying mission through music that equips the church for worship across generations.
