Cherith Christian Gospel Music Group | Northern Ireland |

Cherith was a top Christian band in their native Northern Ireland from the late seventies to the late eighties, with numerous appearances in concerts and church halls throughout north and south of Ireland and England. BBC and Downtown Radio appearances were common and the group picked up an Irish Gospel Music Award. back in 1982 (long before Irish Christian Music Awards were invented. This is not to be confused with the current Northern Ireland Gospel Music Awards) - no doubt, recognition by publishers of Irish secular music of Cherith's unique contribution to Irish Christian music as a whole.

Punchy, close harmonies and capella vocals were the band's. . . Read more. . .

Amazing Grace Lyrics 

Amazing Grace | John Newton

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life…Read more

Love is the Answer. . . Or So I've Been Told  

The old recording studio was partitioned cubicle at the end of a chicken run. It was a freezing January evening with no heat inside. As I sat in a creeking chair gazing at a wall of expensive electronics, my breath almost froze solid as I waited for Mud to count me in.

The last thing I wanted was to sit in a dark, dank recording studio on a cold winters' evening, huddled in a corner, watching the others trying to insulate themselves from the cold with whatever they could find lying around, just enough to…
