Words and music by Matt Redman, Robert Marvin, and Tim Winstall / arr. Tom Fettke and Thomas Grassi
With One Voice Choral Series
The original title for Mote's 1834 poem was "The Immutable Basis of a Sinner's Hope". Today we know it as "The Solid Rock". 19th century Englishman Mote could not have imagined that his text would, 175 years later, inspire 21st century Matt Redman's moving musical statement of faith. The choral writing is as simple and straightforward as is the text. Michael Lawrence's orchestration paints moving mystical colors from this dramatic Fettke/Grassi collaboration. Together they make an accessible yet, refreshing addition to worship.
