Once for All
21 Scripture memory songs featuring vocals by Chris McCrea, Phil Kim and Stacy Pomroy, as well as a new singers Greg King and Kristin Rhoads. This album has more harmonies than any previous Hide the Word album, which adds to the variety and creativity of the songs.
As in A Ransom for Many, Stephen Altrogge has written two of the songs. The musical contributions by others also add to the musical punch of the CD, such as Chris McCrea on live drums and piano. Roger Hooper contributes exciting synth, drum programming and piano, not to mention great guitar work by Barry Little and Stephen Altrogge.
Once for All uses Scriptures from the ESV (English Standard
Version), a new, very accurate and readable translation of the Bible,
as well as a few Scriptures from the NIV. Future Hide the Word
projects will use the ESV predominantly, if not exclusively.
