If modern worship songs were recorded in the 1980’s, what would they sound like? Would there be influences of Boston, Journey, Phil Collins/Genesis and other groups in the sound?
I think so.
I wanted to go a little ‘old school’ worship and I thought Open the Eyes of My Heart would be PERFECT!!! This arrangement of Paul Baloche’s classic worship song has a nod to the 80s band ‘Boston’. You’ll hear the guitar on the intro and know what I mean. This turned out to be a GREAT version of this ‘oldie but goodie’. LOTS of energy and a great way to open the service.
Many modern churches, through inception or adaptation, are utilizing a rhythm driven style of music. What I have tried to do through AnderKamp Music’s ‘Horns & Rhythm’ series is to create arrangements that are based around the modern rhythm section BUT that also feature a horn section. My purpose is intentional…to give more instrumentalists the opportunity to use their gifts to glorify God.
Horns & Rhythm – Retro Worship
Today’s worship songs with an 80’s sort of twist to them. You’ll hear obvious Boston, Journey, Genesis and Chicago type influences throughout the entire series. But most importanly, you’ll hear creative arrangement of modern worship songs that utilize both Horns AND Rhythm throughout!
