Canticles - from the Song of Moses in Exodus 15 to the Song of Moses and the Lamb in Revelation 15 God has given voice to his people's response in poetic praise throughout the story of scripture. He has given poetic song as an embodied way for his people to corporately gather their spirits together and offer praise, thanksgiving, lament, and covenant proclamation. The canticles typically refer to songs in scripture that habitate outside the psalms.

In this latest compilation from Cardiphonia we have invited a group of church musicians and songwriters to meditate on 13 of these scripture songs that have been the most used throughout church history. So few of them find voice in the praises of the evangelical church (it is slightly a different case in the more liturgical traditions) and most of its musicians are largely unaware of their presence. They have so much to teach us about God and worship and we though it was important for the churches musicians to have an opportunity to engage with these songs.

These canticles are a brilliant array of the various ways of writing from scripture. Some of them are word for word renditions, others pursuing something akin to dynamic equivalence, many offer a paraphrase, and a couple provide reflections from this side of the cross.

All in all they will be a huge blessing to the church as we seek to sing God's songs back to Him.
