Alas and did my Savior bleed?

That is one of my favorite hymns from growing up.

This morning I received an email from Dan Koch, a member of the Christian band Wayfarer. The band ‘repurposes hymns’.

According to Dan, “We do something a little different than most bands: we take lyric sets from old, largely forgotten hymns or Southern Spirituals, and we write entirely new music to those lyrics: melodies, chords, arrangements, etc.  We call it “Repurposed Hymns”

I listened to their version of “Alas and Did My Savior Bleed” (that you can download here for free) and really liked it.  Not sure what style I’d classify it as… but it was fresh and different.

Take a listen…  Let me know what you think.
