Music Day

If you're in North America, you probably know this band from the film Courageous. But before the so-called 'Christian media' (which is surely of the devil) got hold of their material about a year or two ago and played it to death, Casting Crowns was an excellent thought-provoking band -- like a smoother, quieter, 'modernised' Petra.

Despite their occasionally formulaic other material, their Christmas album is excellent.

Title: I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
Artist: Casting Crowns
Album: Peace On Earth
Year: 2008
Label: Provident Label Group
iTunes here; YouTube here.

Then rang the bells more loud and deep
"God is not dead, nor does He sleep"
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on Earth, good will to men...
