Alas! and did my Savior bleed,
and did my Sovereign die?

. . . are words we know from our hymnals.  Words that were testimonial and spoke the word of God.  There was a great filling of hymns at the Barbados Gospelfest’s Hymn Speak event.  On occasion, the aisle was occupied with a worshipper lifting up the name of the lord. No precision or energy was spared by director, Antigua born Mikie Rogers. His knowledge of the word, expression of the gospel, the almost aromatic feel of each hymn was worth every moment.

The opportunity to be thrown back to the classical and romantic eras with popular hymns was a treat. Do you remember “Standing on the Promises”, “Sing Them to Me Over Again”, “How Firm a Foundation”, “Break Thou The Bread of Life”? these were the lyrical and musical masterpieces presented at Hymn Speak, “Beautiful Words, Wonderful Words”

Hymns were not the only sumptuous delight of the evening, there was a brass section that blew the notes into the souls of the audience, only causing an even more raptured effect in the event.

Hymn Speak was a classical brought to life in the 21st century
