Birmingham is the home of a lot of very talented musicians, and at the top of that list are the artists involved with Red Mountain Music.
Red Mountain Music is a group of musicians from the community that come together and make stunning and modern arrangements of little-known hymns.
The hymns are so deep in their language and thought, and the music is so beautiful that the combination is a truly worshipful experience.
One of my best friends in the world, Ashley Spurling (Mom of AJ, Ali’s best friend and blog co-star), is their primary vocalist, and if you have ever heard Ashley sing, you would know that her breathtaking talent increases the spectacular quality of their music even further.
Red Mountain Music travels all over the country performing concerts, and are very well known in the music community, so I feel VERY privileged that they are in my hometown.
Last year, Red Mountain Music made a Christmas CD (a few of you might have won it here). They also performed a Christmas Concert at Workplay that Chris and I attended. It was by far the most “Christmasy” thing we did all season.
The concert was amazing, the Workplay venue is intimate and romantic (if you haven’t sat in one of their romantic booths and cuddled up while listening to Christmas music, you haven’t lived!!), and there couldn’t have been anything better to get us in the Christmas spirit.
This year, they’re giving the concert again, except this time, they’ll be mixing in their regular music with the Christmas show, so it will be a wonderful sampling of all of Red Mountain Music.
The date is December 21st at 8pm at Workplay. Tickets are only $5, a steal of a price to get to experience such superior talent. If you’re in the Birmingham area, this really is a show that will complete your Christmas – I promise!
….just don’t take all of the cozy booths before Chris and I arrive.
To experience their music and to get into the Christmas spirit, here are some samples of their Christmas album (Ashley sings all of the vocals on this album, so you’ll get to see what I mean about her amazing voice):
- 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
And here are the sample clips from This Breaks my Heart of Stone:
- This Breaks My Heart of Stone
- High Beyond Imagination
- Come Heavy Laden
- Crown Him
- Lead Me To the Rock
