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?!?!):

  1. Silent Night
  2. Joy To The World
  3. What Child Is This?
  4. O Come, All Ye Faithful
  5. Little Drummer Boy
  6. Away In A Manger
  7. Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent
  8. O Come, O Come Emmanuel
  9. 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!!!

  2. Wow what a great Voice Ashley has, I love the song “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” and she sings it absolutely beautiful! I’d love a change to have this cd, thank you!

  3. My favorite Christmas song is “O Holy Night”. That song, when done right, sends chills down MY spine.

    And I agree that Ashley has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard! It thrills my soul to hear her sing. I know that sounds like overkill, but that is the only way to describe the feeling I have about it. Super amazing!

    And Rach, don’t sell yourself short. I am amazed at your organization knack and your knack for numbers and money management. I know it may not feel like a big deal to you because it comes so easy, but to me, that’s huge. And of course you are a very talented writer.

As for my usual favorite Christmas music, O Holy Night is usually top of the list, but I also grew to love Sarah McLachlin’s version of In The Bleak Mid-Winter over the past holiday. I have to say I’ve never heard Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent before your posting of the samples of the songs, and it sounds gorgeous. I’d love to hear the song in it’s entirety… along with the rest of the CD. Thanks for the exposure to this group, and for the chance to win!
