Twila Paris has written and performed some of the most enduring contemporary songs of our day. How Beautiful is possibly her most widely known. Her moving lyrics take us from the Upper Room to Calvary, speaking of Christ's forgiveness and mercy. Finally, the focus turns to the Redeemed, who are transformed into His likeness and who lay down their lives as He did. Mr. Courtney's simple, uncluttered setting allows the listener to contemplate these words, paired with Ms. Paris' beautiful Celtic melody.
