The blessing of songs from across the sea!

12 Apostles – Great Ocean Road Victoria Australia

Thanks to Tim Challies for a recent post on his blog entitled “Songs we sing that you probably don’t”. His aim was to share some lesser known songs that have greatly blessed his church. This got me thinking, since most followers of SevenNotes are not from Australia (and I am) there are probably many songs that have become popular here that you are missing out on! What follows is my attempt to cover the best offerings for congregational singing which we have enjoyed from Australian songwriters in the last decade or so. Most of the lead sheets will be available through Song Select (CCLI) and part or full recordings of the songs are on the net. In fact, I have compiled a playlist on Spotify called Church Songs Australia where you can find them all! I will start with most recent and work backwards (and if I have already shared something on one of them, I’ll send you to that post to explore). Clicking on song titles below will take you to an mp3 and sheet music (most of the time). (NOTE: I’ve just discovered EMU’s homepage is down at the moment so some of the links may not work! Sorry – should be fixed soon.)

  1. Hi Ros. I hope all is going well for you guys! I just wanted to let you know that none of the links I’ve clicked on from this post to Emu music have worked for me. Maybe the fault is at my end or perhaps there is just a problem with Emu at present, but thought I would let you know. Say hi to all your family! Just on my way out to put up Christmas decorations at the Oasis! Bye! Rebekah

  2. It does seem to be a problem with EMU – can’t even get to the homepage at the moment. The links all worked earlier today. Sorry! At least you can still listen on Spotify if you want 🙂
