Podcast: A Mighty Fortress Arrangement By Scott Lee

Scott Lee, a Southern Seminary alumnus, currently serves as the Minister of Worship at State Street Baptist Church in New Albany, IN. He has a heart for God-centered worship and it shows in his selections of music each week. He has also updated some of the greatest hymns of the church. Periodically in our worship service, Scott introduces these new arrangements. He is working on putting together a CD, which has been delayed due to the birth of his first child. For the time being, I have been granted permission to share with the readers of Said at Southern his arrangement of Martin Luther’s A Mighty Fortress.


Please give it a listen and tell us what you think.

    Not bad, but to be honest, I was hoping for something a bit more, or something a bit different. Basically this is just the same tune and harmonization, just with a busy drummer and U2-esque guitar sitting in the background the whole time. While I applaud the effort, there doesn’t seem to be much new or original here.

  2. Tony Kummer says:

    I like it.
    I’ve always preferred up tempo versions of this song.

  3. This was Scott’s first attempt at the song. It is still very much a work in progress.

    Sorry to say this, but I think He has ruined Luther’s song. Admittedly, Luther’s song is not easy to sing, but this version is simply a jazzed-up rework with the typical drums & guitar.

  7. Everyone’s a critic. Could it be better? Sure. I’m a musician, composer and arranger. I could pick it apart, but I’m going to commend him for the effort. Good conversion to guitar-friendly charts. The drummer did more than just add a beat, but you gotta listen to hear it.

    Keep up the good work, Scott. Artists get better like Christians are sanctified. It’s an ongoing process this side of eternity. You’ll never please everyone and you’ll always ruffle someone. Keep focused on God and you’ll be His tool no matter what.
