What’s new is old again

Today I’m thinking about contemporary hymns, and I thought you might enjoy this interview with English composer Stuart Townend about his hymn “How Deep the Father’s Love.” It’s followed by Benjamin Esh playing the hymn on mountain dulcimer–an instrument that gives the contemporary tune a much older feel, so that what’s new is old again.
