Sometimes we write new music to old hymns that have fallen out of common practice as a way to bring them back into circulation and remind us of the truths that they express in a particular way.
I've decided to take a well-known hymn with a well-known melody and set it to new music to perhaps let the words resonate in a new way. Familiarity can sometimes bring its own obscurity. It won't be for everybody. It might just be for me.
