There’s something about worship en Espanol. I don’t know what it is. I haven’t heard that much of it, but what I have heard really conveys the passion and reverence God is worthy of so well it really makes a believer want to, well…worship. I want to thank one of our FCC worship leaders (Jorge Pantoja) for turning me onto a few songs that really sort of smacked me upside the head.
I don’t know much at all about Julio Melgar, but his song Creo En Ti makes me want to hit my knees every time I hear it. I would imagine that is precisely what Mr Melgar had in mind. Such a beautiful song of worship.
Secondly, En Espiritu y En Verdad (In Spirit and in truth) is just a flat out great band, worship or otherwise. Great musicianship, and completely spirit-filled. They have a version of the Klaus song “I Give You Glory” that is likely one of the best praise arrangements I’ve heard, in my opinion.
Of course I am not exactly what you’d call bilingual, but I like music that knocks things down in the way of barriers, and if a person or group has a real heart for worship, I believe it can transcend language, and often does.
If you have some time, look up either of the artists I mentioned on Youtube. They are on there, and worthy of your time.
I am also happy to listen to any recommendations, so send them my way…
