Completing the trilogy begun with Simple Gifts and Tree of Life, here is another collection of the dances, hymns and marches which were part of the Shakers' everyday lives and worship. Barry Phillips and William Coulter, once again join forces with longtime musical friends Shelley Phillips, Mike Marshall, Robin Petrie, Lars Johannesson, Laurie Hart, Neal Hellman and others in these lovingly arranged melodies.

The moods on Music on the Mountain, as on its predecessors, range from solemn to joyous; from exuberant to profoundly peaceful -- and underlying all are the fundamental Shaker ideals of simplicity and reverent humility. Like its companion albums, Music on the Mountain is filled with music to cheer the heart and lift the spirit.
