A Song of Songs

So glad you posted this link Baxter - a rare Trinitarian song in contemporary worship. Here's some info on Godfrey Birtill for those who may not have come across him before.
He was born in Chorley, Lancashire, England UK. His family has Moravian roots dating back to the early 1700′s including Moravian hymn writer James Montgomery (Angels from the Realms of Glory) being one of his ancestors.
He is married to Gill, has 4 children and lives in Lincoln UK. It has been said that Godfrey’s unique ‘minstrel anointing’, blending worship and intercession, is in part an inheritance from his Moravian roots. In the Moravians church history is the ’100 year prayer meeting’ and they were also a major influence to the Wesleys.
Many of his songs like, ‘Outrageous Grace’, and ‘When I Look at the Blood’, have a prophetic edge to them and have been picked up internationally.
Much of his ministry is connected to ‘grass roots’ city prayer gatherings across the denominations. He often writes songs on location that are connected to the city, seeking to release the cities indigenous song and lament. He’s led worship and done ‘Song and Intercession’ workshops across the UK, South Africa, Europe and America, including song workshops on a reservation with Navajo Indians.
Godfrey has released 14 live CDs, a studio CD (You’re Still God) and a live DVD.
