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!!!

My favorite is Santa Baby.
My speakers are kaput :( and I can’t listen to her songs. Sigh.
My favorite holiday song is White Christmas. I simply adore Christmas music and wait each year until Thanksgiving Day when my favorite radio station begins playing Christmas music all day every day until Dec 25th :)

Rachel, I’m not a blogger and I don’t spend much time reading blogs, but I’ve enjoyed reading yours since you sent me the link yesterday. Your Ali is precious, and I love reading your comments about her. I also enjoyed the Silent Night clip by your friend, and she does have a nice voice! Thanks for sharing.
This would be perfect for me at work, because we need some new Christmas music to keep us going through December. We start listening early because we work retail. I love Christmas music!
We've had our Christmas tree up for 15 days already. Finished up my cards & sending them out on the 15th. I like to get them out earlier so people can enjoy them longer.
She does have a great voice. Thanks so much for the contest- I love to support independent music and hear other praise bands at work. Wonderful!
