Many Latter-day Saint musicians spend careers making music that teaches the gospel. Members of the church everywhere benefit from their music in lots of ways, obvious and not so obvious. Other Latter-day Saint musicians live lives of great faith, but make music for other audiences. Though the gospel message in their music may not be as apparent, their devotion to the gospel makes them powerful tools in the hands of the Lord. And, of course, their testimonies are clearly felt by anyone who knows or meets them. Recently, a number of hard-working LDS artists (mostly of the latter type) got together to work on a labor of love; the formation of a performing group dedicated to spreading their love for the gospel through performing hymns together. They call themselves “The Lower Lights,” and they’ve just released their first album. The performers are an all-star cast of some of your favorite artists, of all kinds, from Sarah Sample to Paul Jacobsen, from Ryan Tilby to Cherie Call. The project (subtitled “a hymn revival” is a joyful celebration of faith and hymnody that you’re sure to love. The video below ought to whet your appetite. Enjoy!
