Cross Heart Rose Sky Ring

Koiné, the winners of the 2013 and 2016 Wisconsin Area Music Industry award for Christian music and a nationally touring band, presents CROSS HEART ROSE SKY RING.

The cross, the heart, a rose, the sky, and a gold ring. Five images that have significance and beauty on their own, but when they are combined they create a symbol of faith that reminds us not only what our Savior Jesus did for us on the cross, but what that means for us in this life and beyond.

CROSS HEART ROSE SKY RING is the latest release from Christian recording artists Koiné. The album explores the art, teachings, and music of Martin Luther. The albums contains 10 songs written 500 years ago that sound modern. Throughout the album Koiné stays true to the melodies and the words of the songs, but they approach them through the lens of their own musical experience, instruments, and influences. From the introspective singing and guitar strumming on May God Bestow On Us His Grace to the hand clapping/foot stomping of We Now Implore God the Holy Ghost to the angelic and anthemic highlight Isaiah Mighty Seer in Days of Old Koiné displays a wide range of musical influences while keeping a cohesive theme. And of course the album wouldn’t be complete without the Lutheran anthem A Mighty Fortress is Our God.

CROSS HEART ROSE SKY RING is a journey through Luther’s words and works in a modern setting for the common people of today to hear, maybe again, for the first time.

CROSS HEART ROSE SKY RING is an album that celebrates the music and art of Martin Luther, the Reformer. Though the songs are 500 years old, the message they carry is as true today as it was the day they were written. The creative, modern instrumentation and setting will bring new life to these hymns, many of which are not commonly used anymore.
