The first time I ever heard Ashley Spurling (AJ’s Mom, for my blog followers) sing, it sent chills down my spine (and that doesn’t happen often). Seven years later and even though she is one of my best friends and I hear her sing all the time, her voice still gives me chills. She has a stunning voice – on of those that you have to hear to believe.
Ashley sings with Red Mountain Music, a group of amazingly creative Birmingham musicians who primarily arrange new music for very rarely used hymns.
For the first time this year, they have created a Christmas CD, called Silent Night. It uses the traditional arrangements of the songs, and is simple, eloquent, and beautiful.
And I have four copies to give away to you!
Here are sample clips from the songs on the album (did I mention that Ashley is singing every track?!?!):
- Silent Night
- Joy To The World
- What Child Is This?
- O Come, All Ye Faithful
- Little Drummer Boy
- Away In A Manger
- Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
- Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus
I personally love this selection of music – especially my favorite traditional Christmas songs, “What Child is This” and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”. Oh yeah – an I love “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”. OK – I LOVE them all!!!
