Anybody else wonder how this CD sells? My thoughts are who was deemed the judge of this little competition, and how they decided which songs were more “God filled” or more worshipful. Any thoughts on this? Would you consider, “In Christ Alone” to be modern or contemporary? I’m leaning towards the latter….Also, does this title make you want to buy it? (Leave me some comments)

- 6 Easter songs (5 traditional hymns in contemporary arrangements, plus an original Easter worship song) – all accompanied by original videos! For each song, there is a demonstration version with and without lyrics, a split/click track version with and without lyrics, and a chord chart.
- 6 Long Plays, taken from the accompanying song videos
- 10+ Looping Backgrounds
- 2 5-Minute Countdowns
- A video Sermon Illustrator
Take a look at what it has to offer, buy the whole thing, or download only the ones you like, or need. Either way, remember a ton of people acribe to the CEO model. They only attend church on Christmas an Easter Only. Make the most of it.

Now, the most popular presentation software, and Collide magazine’s Best for 2007, Mediashout, comes together to directly integrate with SAMEPAGE Music. Check em out. This is really going to be a great partnership, for a total worship experience. You knew eventually someone would pull it all together. This is Samepage: Instead of three brands of music stands scattered across the platform with taped-on sheet music, a plasma screen propped in front of the front row and notes wedged into the corners of the stage monitors, someone would invent a way to put everyone on the same page. Well, they did. The Corevalus system, though complex, solves the problem and is easy to use. The company’s management team draws from a deep computer literacy and a broad commitment to worship. The result is SamePage. A host computer handles the tasks of processing and displaying music and lyrics to a group of attached flat panel displays. Each panel is about the size of a music stand. So the congregation is not forced to look through an unwieldy box, SamePage can compile a set list, display the lyrics for the vocalists, show different transpositions to each instrumentalist and add songs on the fly. The impact Corevalus will have on the worship community is immense. Just as Aviom altered the audio landscape and made personal monitoring the norm, so too, SamePage will change the way teams track their music. With SamePage, the band can instantly throw in an invitation hymn, drop a half step on a ballad and quickly download a song referenced in the sermon, Corevalus has eliminated the clutter and confusion of visualizing music by delivering a product that all future competitors will be hard pressed to meet.” Could your church use something like this?

The thing I like about these, the Expanse Collection, is that they are subtle enough to put behind the speaker during a message, and some would go perfect with worship. Check them out: HERE, check out all of the producers on the left hand column.
