Red Mountain Music
I’ve been fascinated by Red Mountain Music. A ministry of Red Mountain Church (PCA) in Birmingham AL, their focus is arranging new music for all-but-forgotten hymn texts. Many of these texts are from the 19th century but never made it into any hymnal. So the words are quite Christ centered and doctrinal, with a very different feel from current contemporary lyrics. At the same time the music itself is sometimes bluegrass, sometimes R&R.
Anyway, check it out for yourself. You can download some free mp3 files (and pdf’s with lyrics and chords) for your listening pleasure here.
