Thread Name: Sharon Mountain Harmony: Golden Ring of Gospel
Last Fall,when the Burns Sisters were at Strawberry Music Festival and sang "Surrender",I got that feeling.Their harmonies were incredible. I asked Marie Burns if she minded if I learned the song and sang at my church. She said she would be thrilled if I did that.
I ordered two CDs from them that had the song on it. When I received the CDs all 5 sisters were singing harmony on the song(there were only 3 sisters at the festival).Needless to say, the hair on the back of my neck stood up.
I learned the song and did sing it in church, and I hope my solo male voice did it justice. I could hear those beautiful female harmonies in my head as I sang it.I wish the congregation could have heard them also.

There is one line in the song that really pertains to this:

"Echoes of voices Praise and sing through me
Holding the light for me to see"

I'm going to have to get that one you are talking about moonchild.
