Holy Mountain is the fruit of Steve Eulberg's experience as pastor of innercity churches, retreat leader, director of youth camping and church musician.
These 16 "sing-a-long" songs range from an a capella setting of the the "Lord's Prayer (Come, Letcha Come)" that is reminiscent of the Australian outback, to rhythmic Psalm Raps "God is Faithful" and "Let All Who Breathe", to a ballad "Dancing in the Light" to the up-tempo "Dancing with Jesus."
Instrumentation includes: guitar, piano, hammered dulcimer, mandolin, bass and various percussion.
