Availability: Temporarily Out Of Stock

Award-winning worship band The City Harmonic comes full circle with its first live album, Benediction Live: Worship from Churches Working Together in Canada. The 14-track album was recorded April 29, 2017 in the town where it all started for the band, Hamilton, Ontario, and celebrates the songs and unifying worship movement that became a soundtrack for worshippers around the globe.

From a crucible of small churches of various denominations in Hamilton calling themselves TrueCity, the heart and line-up of The City Harmonic was fused through the sweat, joy and tears of urban mission. Grappling with the struggle of everyday people and writing songs for worship fueled by a "together for the good of the city" ethos, The City Harmonic returned to its roots to record its fourth and final album, Benediction Live, meant to be both a blessing and a sending,

not an end.

"A benediction isn't a goodbye--It's a blessing, a 'sending.' At the end of every worship service, a pastor will often say something that's known as a Benediction. It's not a parting thought, it's a way of sending us out into the world to be the church -- the hands and feet of Jesus to a hurting world," says The City Harmonic's Elias Dummer (lead vocals, keys). "Even as we gathered with so many friends and family the night that we recorded Benediction Live, there was this incredible sense of the vitality of the work of Christ. Why? Because hundreds of students had been out getting their hands dirty in mission all day!" continues Elias. "These weren't just songs we sang, these were declarations of what God had been doing through us all day. That's what this whole thing is about!"

In addition to their new song "Honestly," Benediction Live also includes The City Harmonic's "Manifesto," "Praise The Lord," "Holy (Wedding Day)," "Mountaintop," "A City On A Hill," "I Am" and more of the band's best-loved modern worship anthems of longing, hope and celebration.

They're forged in the search of something more promising than what you were born into..." -Bruce Springsteen, inducting the E Street Band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 2014 To fully understand The City Harmonic, you have to take a look at the city and season that made this...
