A while ago, much to my delight, I had the chance to review The Corner Room’s first project, Psalm Songs. Today I’m introducing you to their follow-up project, an EP concentrating on I Corinthians 13, entitled Love Never Ends.
My appreciation for The Corner Room stems from the quality music they produce while making the lyrics direct from the ESV scriptures. If you feel like you fall behind in the area of Scripture memory, this music makes it practically effortless to store away some verses in your heart.
Love Never Ends features the same soothing arrangements of guitar and piano as its predecessor, but with the addition of strings and brass where it suits.The additional instrumentation was arranged by Grammy-nominated composer/arranger, Don Hart. It is arranged in a three-movement suite, featuring three songs with vocals and three instrumentals; it’s about twelve minutes in length.
Though I enjoyed all the music on this album, the piece that stood out to me was Movement III, the closing movement. The ebbs and flows of the strings accompany the text beautifully. It’s also my favorite part of this chapter of Scripture:
“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.” – I Cor. 13:12
The hope and prayer of the musicians with The Corner Room is that Christians would enjoy and meditate more deeply on this beloved passage of Scripture with the help of their music. I think you’ll find this EP to be a beautiful addition to your home’s music collection. You can find more information about The Corner Room here.

Kelly spends most days homeschooling the kids — reading aloud, feeding everyone, and chasing down lost papers and stray socks. She loves to travel whenever it’s possible. She believes that there is much good in any chapter of Romans, the soundtrack to Les Miserables, and the smell of homemade bread. She once wore a t-shirt that said “The book was better” to Harry Potter world (Ravenclaws unite!).
When she’s not at home, she’s helping out around Oakhurst Baptist Church, where she heads up children’s ministries. She writes occasionally at her blog (http://kellkell.com), tweets often, and has written a couple chapters of a book that she is too nervous to mention.
