Album Notes
Daily amazed at the mercies of God in her life, and by the hand of Providence that has carved her every step, Lori Sealy's songwriting deeply reflects her intimate acquaintance with existence in a fallen world and with a Savior who kindly redeems that which is broken.

Her story is one of nearly being aborted, graciously being adopted, and later being abandoned. It travels the path of atheism and autism, doubt and discipleship, and arrives at a place of grace where the sovereign mercy of Christ forms hope out of hopelessness and grants light even in the deepest darkness.

Lori's newest release is "THE STRIFE IS OVER." On it you'll find 13 reworked, rewritten, and retuned hymns. The sources for these songs span the centuries of Christendom - the earliest of them being from 530AD. There are words by Bonar, Winkworth, Crosby, Zinzendorf, and Fortunatus; and the content is rich with the good news of the gospel Jesus Christ as well as with the hope of heaven!

Musically, Lori continues to provide her listeners with the intuitive melodies and supportive harmonies that they've come to expect from her songwriting. Once again, some well-known and incredibly talented players have come alongside her to bring these songs to life. Dale Baker (Sixpence None the Richer) is returning to play drums and percussion. Reggie Sullivan (Wynona, Ron McCurdy, The Reggie Sullivan Band) is part of the team again on electric and upright bass. Becky Edmondson (Lori's live singing partner) provides her sweet backing vocals. Kenny Hutson (Crowder, Drew Holcombe and the Neighbors) is adding mandolin and dobro to several songs. Sarah Dean performs cello and violin. Leah Wilson will returns on flute. And of course, Anthony Gravley is at the helm as producer, engineer, and electric guitar guy! There are some unique sonic nuances throughout the project and the entire project is an eclectic,, but unified, combination of several styles: acoustic, jazz, and even bluegrass!

Here is a note from Lori about the project:

"I love old hymns – really old hymns. I love their fullness and their focus: the balanced portrait they present of the character of our God; the poetic way in which they direct our gaze to the person, power, and promise of Jesus Christ; and the honest avenue of expression they give to the grand gamut of human emotion – jubilation, lamentation and all points in between.

This project is a collection of old hymns. Here you’ll find freshly tuned lyrics from ages past. These are words that have encouraged my heart in times of strife, strain, and struggle, and words that have encouraged multitudes of other hearts down through the corridor of time. These are songs that span the centuries, cross the continents, flow from the pens of male and female saints, and all point to the hope of the glorious gospel of our gracious God. They speak to the fact that the deepest strife is over, the greatest victory gained, and the peace that passes all understanding found through the substitutionary work of Jesus – the sinless Son of God who lived the life we could not live, died the death we deserved to die, and rose from the grave that we need not fear the grave.

Yes, in this world we often have trouble, but Christ has overcome the world. In His silencing of the eternal strife of sin and death, those who are resting in His atoning work find a certain solace as they face the temporal strife of this life. May these hymns remind you of that solace and of the Savior from whom it flows.

Hallelujah! The Strife is Over!"
