Ancient and modern – something old, something new. The four traditional hymns on this EP have been given an inspirational new interpretation and fresh approach. ‘The King Of Love’ was first worked on in London for a TV broadcast, and this updated version has been reworked and re-mastered. ‘When I Survey The Wondrous Cross’, ‘Take My Life And Let It Be’ and ‘There Is A Green Hill’ are all well known hymns which have been re-imagined with new melodies and poetic additions illuminating the familiar texts.
