Speaking of Phil . . .
Yesterday he was contacted by Northwestern Publishing House seeking permission to include "If Christ Had Not Been Raised from Death" (LSB 486) in the supplement to Christian Worship (hymnal of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod). The words of the hymn were written by Christopher Idle; Phil set those words to music. It is a glorious wedding of text and tune, and I am not surprised that others have taken notice. If you haven't discovered it yet, I encourage you to do so!
