Happy Birthday, Modern Worship!

From Christian Music

Hard to believe that it's already been a decade since modern worship began
to revolutionize the way the church used music to glorify God (not to mention
transforming the way the Christian music industry approached publishing). Modern
worship doesn't have an official anniversary—songs like "Shout to the Lord" and
"Lord I Lift Your Name on High" were already staples in the church, and labels
like Vineyard, Maranatha, and Integrity had been trying to introduce modern
worship for years. But several best-selling milestones all happened to release
around the same time, paving the way for a phenomenon that still continues ten
years later. Below are 10 albums (presented in approximate chronological order)
that remain essential to any modern worship library.
