An intimate cover of Charlie Hall's “Mystery”

J-P Mauro - published on 05/31/17

Mathias Michael is adept at creating a prayerful atmosphere.

Mathias Michael is a relatively new face to the Christian music scene. At the end of 2016 he expanded his EP Amplified to a 7-song album of the same name. This cover of Charlie Hall’s “Mystery” is not available on the album, but you can download it for free by subscribing to his website.

He opens his cover by leading the group he assembled through the ‘Glory Be’ before performing “Mystery” in a gentle, prayerful tone. His music maintains its intimacy where the original ends with a hard rock style. Michael uses the chorus to grow the sound while maintaining the impression of a church service hymn.

This cover features Dana Catherine, who uses her strong voice sparingly to accent certain moments and harmonize. Dana has been on Cecilia before with her song “My Savior in Me.”
