I love the soft, slow sacred music as much as the next music fan, but every now and then, I need something with a little more oopmh on my Sundays.
Enter the Provo music consortium known as The Lower Lights. This is a group of LDS musicians–some famous, some not–who gather occasionally and revamp hymns not only of our faith, but also hymns of other Christian faiths.
Their two CDs are often my soundtrack traveling to my church building on Sunday mornings, but sometimes even during the week when I need a spiritual booster shot, I’ll listen to their music.
There’s so many I love that it’s so hard to pick just one favorite. So I picked two. Enjoy.
