Liturgical Rock Star

Isaac Everett's RotationOne of the several musical hits at the General Convention (the others were a Peruvian duo and one of the Van Trapp family) was Isaac Everett whose techno versions of ancient Christian music are definitely innovative and worshipful. To find out more about Everrett, you can visit his website isaaceverett.com. To hear his 7/4 rendition of a classic hymn from his CD Rotation, try this link http://www.isaaceverett.com/incarnation.mp3 The text of the song is a paraphrase of the Liturgy of St James, arguably from the 1st Century, with 17th Century French Carol. Everett offers other opportunities to look and listen at his website.

    I listened to this and its pretty sweet. I don't think the borderline pop tone of the singers voice goes well with the backdrop of almost dark instrumentals but I really like it and I like that song.
