Tag Archives: Over The Rhine


Genre: Classical, Acoustic, Instrumental

This song is taken from Linford Detweiler’s 2004 album Unspoken Requests.

Linford Detweiler is one half of Over The Rhine and has released three solo albums, all instrumental. This track, is the opening track to his third album, Unspoken requests and it sets the perfect tone for the rest of the album. This song is so beautifully enchanting, and it makes a great companion to prayer times. A truly wonderful piece of music.

Genre: Blues, Slow Jazz, Acoustic Piano, Christmas

This song is taken from the album Snow Angels.

Over The Rhine don’t like to be classed as a ‘Christian Band’ but they are both Christians and in a band so by that definition they are. The Ohio band Over The Rhine are the married coupling of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist. They aren’t overtly vocal about their faith but in interviews they occasionally discuss it and it certainly shows through in some of their songs. This is a beautiful little blues song, it’s content clearly stated in the title, and although it may be bluesy it still has that sat beside the open fire sound to it. I love a good original Christmas song, especially one which breaks the mould and this does just that in a wonderfully stylish way.
