Metanoia on YouTube

As part of the revamp I was talking about in my previous ramble, Metanoia have a YouTube channel. The first video is the Alt:Worship we did at #Sanctum2020.

Why not give us a like, subscribe and all that jazz….

Send the Fire | Metanoia

SEND THE FIRE!!

Lockdown has given us the impetus to do some serious recording. With a heavy live gigging schedule with both Silverthorn and Metanoia, Ruth and I talk about “finding the time to record” but in reality, you need an extended period of time to do it.

This week we took our favourite hymn* and did a full on Metanoia production of it.

With a distinct lack of drummers in our house, we created them from scratch ourselves one afternoon in software. Then guitars, bass and vocals and the addition of a crowd shouting faintly in the background.

I think we successfully channeled the spirit of Britain in 1977.

We’ve been talking on messenger about our next lockdown project. We think we can work out how to get CJ on drums and Bex singing backing vocals all through the power of the internet. Watch this space!

*favourite hymn is a movable feast.

Because He Lives | Metanoia and Bailey

We have all given up so much in the last couple of months. However, there is one thing I’ve managed to gain from all of this. The opportunity to begin recording some music. As all of our live gigs have disappeared we have been turning to Pro Tools.

When we were asked “Can I sing on Easter Day, I was supposed to be doing it in church” it got us thinking. How do you do it via the internet?

This is one of our young people singing into his phone with me and Ruth backing. Each of the parts done in one take so it feels a bit more…. live.

Hope you like it.

When I Survey | Metanoia #GoodFriday

This is something Ruth and I recorded a couple of years ago to use in online worship. We used it as part of our Stations of the Cross service on YouTube this afternoon. The Jesus Film footage is very kindly being allowed for use in online worship. I made contact with them and filled in the necessary forms. This crisis is really showing the best in people. The number of resources people are giving away free is amazing.
