Keith Getty is a composer from Northern Ireland, best known for pioneering "modern hymns." Many of his songs are co-written with his wife, Kristyn Getty and British songwriter Stuart Townend. Among their most popular songs are "In Christ Alone," "The Power of the Cross," and "Speak, O Lord." Keith and Kristyn currently live in the US where they write music and tour.
"There are two reasons we write modern hymns. First, it's to help teach the faith. What we sing affects how we think, how we feel and ultimately how we live, so it's so important that we sing the whole scope of truth the Bible has given us. The second reason is to try to create a more timeless musical style that every generation can sing, a style that relates to the past and the future."
