Page CXVI will always hold a special place in my heart.
They were first introduced to me at the lowest point of my life. During this time I had decidedly taken a break from consuming any content that did not have Theology Proper as a central theme. This included both music I was involved with professionally as well as music I had personally created. Though it was the right thing to do at the time, it often left me artistically malnourished.
So, when a dear friend of mine (shout out to Odd Thomas of Beautiful Eulogy & Humble Beast) decided to tip me off on a refreshingly different, theologically robust, band from Colorado, that he and his wife Heather had listened to, I was grateful and immediately hooked. More importantly, I was both nourished spiritually and artistically.
Although, I did say lowest point, in reality it was one of the best times of my life, and I am thankful for it. I was going through some incredibly hard things, but God was so personal and so gracious during this time. It was as if the Almighty Creator of the universe had reached His hand down and either began the sanctification process for the first time, or kicked it into overdrive.
But you didn’t come here to feel awkward, you came here to listen to the brand new—not yet released—album from Page CXVI, entitled Lent To Maundy Thursday. Listen to it right here in its entirety before it drops on March 4th. If you like what you hear, please share this link with a friend… or ten! Lastly, make sure you pick up this project when it drops at either PageCXVI.com or your favorite digital service provider, such as iTunes or Amazon.
Page CXVI is a project started with the idea of making hymns accessible and known again. They are some of the richest, most meaningful, and moving pieces of music ever written. Page CXVI is influenced by Hymn writers such as Augustus Toplady, William Featherston, Isaac Watts, Robert Lowry, Carl Gustav Boberg, Joachim Neander. As well as musicians such as Sigur Rós, Death Cab for Cutie, Aqualung, Imogen Heap, Patty Griffin, Radiohead, Pedro the Lion, Coldplay, and The Postal Service.
