Unofficial BMG Sound and Spirit Christian Music
This unofficial guide aims to help members of the Sound and Spirit
music club, as well as members of BMG Music Service who enjoy
Christian music. It could also serve prospective members who want to
see what's available before they take the plunge.
My unofficial guide offers some things that the official BMG Music
Service site doesn't. My search feature allows you to search by
price, by format, by length, or to perform more complex searches. If
you enjoy more than one kind of music, or if you sometimes have
trouble guessing which category BMG thinks your favorite recording
artist fits, you might think it's a plus that I haven't sorted
musicians by their style of music. (If you want a giggle sometime, go

these lists includes title, order number, and prices for CDs and

BMG Music Service:
the official site. If you also listen to pop, jazz, or
classical music, start here and pick the link for the Christian
Sound and Spirit
Online: the official site for Sound & Spirit. Jump right to
the Christian stuff. An alternate route to the same information as
the previous link, except that if you go this way, searches won't turn
up anything not listed in BMG's Christian catalog. For example, you
will find two albums by King's X here, but not the five other King's X
titles that BMG has in the "pop" catalog.
