Blessed Assurance: The New Hymns Of Fanny Crosby [edit]
by Various Artists | Genre: AC/Inspo | Release Date: October 09, 2015

The incomparable Fanny Crosby's gift to the Church shines anew in Blessed Assurance: The New Hymns Of Fanny Crosby. The project features unfinished and never-before-published Crosby hymns respectfully crafted with help from Paul Baloche, Michael Farren, All Sons & Daughters, Jon Egan (New Life, Desperation Band), Bart Millard (MercyMe), Stu G(Delirious?, One Sonic Society), Michael W. Smith, Matt Redman, Krissy Nordhoff ("Your Great Name"), Greg Sykes, Dustin Smith and more.

Complete with vocal performances from Baloche, Egan, All Sons & Daughters, Blind Boys of Alabama, Elias Dummer (The City Harmonic), Ricky Skaggs & The Whites, Darlene Zschech, Israel Houghtonwith Seth & Nirva, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and Meredith Andrews, among others, Blessed Assurance: The New Hymns Of Fanny Crosby stands as an original, new-heritage collection from this blind composer that has inspired generations of Christians around the world with hymns like "To God Be the Glory," "All the Way My Savior Leads Me," "Blessed Assurance" and "Redeemed."

In celebration of the remarkable legacy of Fanny J. Crosby 100 years after her death, Integrity Music offered the select gathering of remarkable worship leaders and songwriters above access to an astounding 2,700 unpublished and unfinished compositions by Crosby. This forgotten musical treasure that sat hidden for years was passed from Crosby's publisher to the historic Wheaton College.

Stephen Kelley, an artist, writer and entrepreneur who collects antique hymnals, learned of the forgotten cache and tracked them down to Wheaton. "They wheeled out 20 library carts containing the manuscripts," Kelley recalls, "...some lyrics were on scraps of paper and the backs of envelopes, letterhead, legal paper, all with Fanny's initials. I couldn't believe it when I saw them."

"There are a lot of churches that prefer hymns, and there's a new generation discovering them for the first time as they seek deeper roots within a fresh, modern context," explains Thompson. "With these two connections in mind, we've tried to keep as much of the original lyric as possible, engaging songwriters/leaders in the modern worship movement to help usher the richness of those lyrics into the modern era."
