A love like this.


I’m about to spend a couple of weeks in Shropshire and Wales with my family camping. One of my practices before going away is to ensure much of my computer content? is archived and kept securely. I’m still in the middle of this task and have stumbled across a track I recorded over a decade ago in a studio in South Wales.

Of all the tracks I’ve recorded over many years this simple song still feels special. I’m not a highly emotional person; my highs are not all that high and my lows not too low; yet this song along with a handful of others was written in a highly emotional moment of deep and heartfelt gratitude to Christ.

The strings and the backing vocals were arranged by my friend Andrew Griffiths one of the best musicians I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. They capture the spirit of the song wonderfully. (As well as a great musician Andy is a soundtrack composer much in demand for films and tv. You can hear Andy’s showreel here)

I hope you enjoy it.
