    Not exactly hard when you include names in the image files name..
    BTW what do you think of Witt? Is more of his music “incorporatable” into the music of a spanish NCF? if so what albums?

    hey, that’s cheating!
    The only album I have of Marcos Witt is “Enciende Una Luz”. At NCF-STL we have done at least three songs from this CD, mainly the slow songs.
    Escucharte Hablar
    Mas Que Palabras
    Jesus Eres Mi Buen Pastor
    Some of the songs from this CD are available as leadsheets on Song Select. Ask my dad to hook you up. As far as the content, it’s pretty typical charismatic/CCM kind-of-stuff that is vague enough that it can serve a worship service at certain points. But, I would get your hands on a spanish translated hymnal to include some meat into the service too. As far as style, he does mostly pop-ish tunes that have a nice groove. Some of it is very dance oriented, like club music. He’s kind of like a spanish Lionel Richie.
