I struggle with a lot of worship music. While the best stuff out there has brilliant content, musically most of it sounds like U2 or Coldplay. This is fine. I mostly like U2 and Coldplay, but they’re not what I would normally listen to at home. Mainly this style issue is because I’m shallow. Still, I do find style gets in the way of content at times.
With all that said, here is some worship music I really do rate (both content and style wise):
from The Wavewatcher’s Companion by Gavin Pretor-Pinney. Winner of the 2011 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books.
