I’ve loved the hymn, “Thy Mercy, My God” ever since I heard a new tune for it a few years back. Its an old hymn, but with a new accent. So, getting to hear Sandra and Derek perform it live this past Wednesday in Chattanooga was a treat:
Perhaps their example will encourage Ukrainian musicians to dig around in the musical archives of the Ukrainian church for texts and lyrics that could be re-worked to make sense in today’s Ukraine. I’d love to hear what the church’s Ukrainian worship-accent sounds like.
