Context of the Inspiration
Songs of Praise was composed by Nsay ki la back in October of 2011. Fr Ernest Timchia, then chaplain of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement in the Archdiocese of Bamenda and lecturer in Saint Thomas Aquinas’ Major Seminary (Bambui – Cameroon), had requested a composition of songs of praise and worship.
And there was a reason for this request. The Catholic Charismatic groups are always in need of these songs. The truth is that there are many of such songs available. But the problem is that they are mostly good in melody, but wanting in the lyrics (wordings).
The idea was to write songs that are sweet to sing, and also have the desirable theology for Catholics. Such songs would equally be appealing even to non-Catholics.
A Meeting of Melody and Theology
At the time of writing this collection of songs, Nsay ki la himself was active in the Charismatic Renewal. He, therefore, had an experience, but of the lack, and of the desired outcome.
This is why Songs of Praise can easily be described as a meeting of melody and theology. And so, anyone will really feel comfortable singing and praying along. And this is because the melody is easy and sweet, while the content is sound and profound.
Feeling and Style
Songs of Praise gives a pleasant, joyful feeling. It is performed by the Virtual Chorale. Their voices give that choir effect which makes you feel part of a larger community joined in praise. Yet the interludes in the song leave room for you to personalize it, and insert your own praise.
The style is characteristic of Nsay ki la, who produced the song. It is lively enough to get you up to your feet. These Njang afrobeats will lead you to join in clapping your hands and singing to each chorus. The pleasantness of it is completed by the mixing and mastering of the song by Dijay Kay.
