Measure of Love - Misty Edwards & David Brymer

Measure of Love - Misty Edwards & David Brymer

It is the saints who know what being in love is all about. Earthly love pales by comparison. — Thomas Dubay

I do not like yucky Christian worship music. It makes the skin crawl. They all sound the same, the same syrupy saccharine lyrics, you can almost hear them drooling.

It does not compare with with traditional Victorian hymns and earlier, a competent choir.

Even less with earlier polyphonic music.

What a pleasure then to listen to Measure of Love by Misty Edwards & David Brymer. Brilliant musically and well recorded. Misty Edwards has a beautiful voice.

The lyrics of Harlot are fantastic. Hard to believe this was a spontaneous recording in a prayer room. Some prayer room! It sends shivers down the spine! Play it loud!

It is a pity Misty Edwards & David Brymer had not thought to embed the lyrics. Hopefully this they will do as both FLAC and mp3 make this possible.

The cover art is also excellent.

A pity it is not on bandcamp to order as a CD. I can think of two places it would sell.

A very moving album.
