In the spirit of the holiday season, Anthony Hale and Sarah Christine have come together to gift us a unique rendition of the classic Christmas hymn, “Go Tell It On The Mountain.” A fusion of soulful vocals, jazzy undertones, and a touch of lo-fi magic, this rendition stands out as a refreshing and modern take on a timeless piece.
From the very start, it’s evident that “Go Tell It On The Mountain” holds a special place in Anthony’s heart. He shares, “The soul, the message, the history, it’s always been a special song to me.” Having cherished the hymn since 2012, he embarked on a journey to bring his vision to life, a vision that would capture the essence of Christmas and the joyous proclamation of the Messiah’s arrival.
What sets this release apart from Anthony’s previous work is its distinct jazz influence. Anthony notes, “Go Tell It On The Mountain is much more jazzy than anything I’ve done yet.” The infusion of jazzy elements adds a layer of sophistication, complementing the song’s timeless theme. Sarah Christine, with her remarkable vocal prowess, takes on the classic hymnal lyrics, breathing new life into the verses. Anthony, in his verses, weaves a narrative inspired by the three wise men, capturing the excitement of finding the prophesied Messiah and the urgency to share the good news.
The magic of “Go Tell It On The Mountain” extends to the collaboration process. Anthony reached out to dooda (Jason LaPierre), the mastermind behind a beloved rendition of “Amazing Grace.” Through dooda, Anthony connected with melo, the saxophonist, and Sarah Christine. The collaboration spanned the east and west coasts, with time differences adding an interesting dynamic to the creative process.
In the spirit of the season, “Go Tell It On The Mountain” by Anthony Hale and Sarah Christine emerges as a gift to music lovers, a fusion of tradition and innovation that captures the timeless magic of Christmas.
