The Music of Faith Awakened

Guest post by Grace Bridges.

I remember the first time I encountered songs written into novels. I thought it was very cool. So when the opportunity arose to include some in my own book, I decided to go for it. At the time (2007)  I was sharing an apartment with a very talented German pianist who provided some of the compositions. We worked on lyrics together based on the story, and I had already written one song several years earlier which was suitable. There are four in total. We recorded them roughly on a laptop in the living room, and you can hear them on our old profile set up just for that purpose at http://shoutlife.com/faithsongs. Don’t expect any great quality here, it’s just what we were able to do at the time. But I firmly believe that if there are song lyrics in a book, then it should be possible to hear how the tune goes. Ruth sings solo for a couple of songs and adds harmony on the others. I wrote “Remember” in 2001 at a campground on an island, in fact rather like the one mentioned in the book…
