Keith & Kristyn Getty Free Songwriting Seminar

Keith and Kristyn Getty did a two part seminar at last year's Worship God conference entitled Thoughts On Songwriting that is well worth a listen. Most of it is shaped around the creation and development of some of their fantastic modern hymns. Some things that grabbed me

Compassion Hymn had 10 different chorus and writing it, according to Kristyn, was "horrible" and reduced her to tears. It was never really finished they"just decided to stop".

The Power Of The Cross originally had 19 verses - they picked the best four (five? - can anyone remember?).

And, according to Keith, Stuart Townend is "slightly more masculine than Kristyn!"
