Ever since “Shout to the Lord,” Hillsong has been writing some of the most prominent songs in contemporary Christian worship. Songs like “Mighty to Save,” “From the Inside Out,” and “Hosanna” have become familiar tunes in churches all over the world.
Over the last few years, Hillsong has started a side-project in which they take some of these well-known songs and arrange them in a more pared-down, acoustic style. Instead of fat synth pads, heavy guitar delays, and big drums meant to fill a stadium, you will hear acoustic guitars, strings, and lighter percussion meant for a more intimate setting like a chapel - hence the name of the project, “Hillsong Chapel.”
This month we have been using “Yahweh” (the first of two full-length albums by Hillsong Chapel) as our walk-in music at Compass Bible Church. Especially if you enjoy Hillsong’s music, I would encourage you to check out this project and these fresh yet beautiful arrangements of these songs.
You can find “Yahweh” by Hillsong Chapel at the Compass Books.
