Keith Getty Quotes
My background is Protestant so I benefited from the great Bible teaching that was provided there… I did love the more culturally classical things, like Irish music, which I think is some of the most congregational-style music when you think of… ‘St. Patrick’s Breastplate’ (and) ‘Danny Boy.’ These are traditional Irish melodies. I think being brought up there (Ireland) gave me a sense of melody that is very attuned to congregational singing.
Congregational singing is a holy act, and as I organize my thoughts, I hear my old pastor, Alistair Begg, reminding me that in our song worship, we have to be spiritually alive (dead people don’t sing), spiritually assisted (through the enabling of the Holy Spirit), and spiritually active (committed to daily walking with the Lord).
