For anyone who cares about good worship music, the Porter's Gate Worship Project is like manna from heaven. Over the summer, the initiative convened a huge, ridiculously talented pool of musicians (there are way too many to list) in New York City to collaboratively write and record songs for the project’s first volume, entitled Work Songs.
Mason Jar Music put together a live video for the album’s opening track, by singer-songwriter Madison Cunningham, and it is astonishingly beautiful stuff. "Little Things With Great Love" was written by Audrey Assad (with Cunningham and Bifrost Arts producer Isaac Wardell providing additional lyrics and melody), and was inspired by Mother Teresa's famous statement, “God does not call us all to do great things, but calls us to do small things with great love". The deeply poetic verses are perfectly served by Cunningham's silken delivery, and the emotive, shuddering accompaniment by members of Osso String Quartet multiplies the song's impact many times over.
