Help Needed: Toward A Discography of Conservative Christian Music

I’ve been asked to compile a fairly exhaustive discography of conservative Christian music for a conservative Christian radio station. What I have listed below is just a starting point, but I thought I’d survey the readers of this site for additional suggestions as I compile this list.

The station has asked for recordings of sacred music that are fairly accessible, but good and conservative – the kinds of things that might be heard in a church service, not necessarily sacred art music.

Please comment below or use the contact form above to send your suggestions.
