With her third full length release, critically acclaimed songwriter and musician Audrey Assad offers a spiritually sound, emotionally buoyant collection of powerful original songs.
Fortunate Fall was funded through Kickstarter in the Spring of 2013. She and her fans raised the goal of $40,000 in 50 hours and ended the campaign with a bang at nearly 200% of the goal. The album is full of songs for liturgy, personal prayer, and corporate worship and the title is taken from the Exsultet – “O truly necessary sin of Adam, destroyed completely by the Death of Christ! O happy fault that earned so great, so glorious a Redeemer!”
Fortunate Fall is an alternative translation of “O felix culpa”, commonly heard as “O happy fault”.
The album explores the beauty of human need, in that needing God allows us to know God is Christ the Redeemer and the Holy Spirit the Revealer.
