God, You Are My Refuge (EM 001) 1977
Yahweh In The Morning (EM 002) 1979
Formed from Steubenville, Ohio’s Community Of God’s Love, a charismatic Catholic “prayer group”, Emmanuel does an excellent job at the folk/praise style that became the substance of the folk worship service. With eleven members they sound less choral than similar outfits (such as The Word Of God), using tambourine and woodblock for percussion, accompanied by guitar, bass, flute, plus some dulcimer and mandolin harp. Yahweh In The Morning added piano and vocal polish for more of an ensemble sound very similar to Servants Of The Light. Whether they’re performing quiet somber acoustic ballads or up-tempo clap-along numbers, Emmanuel has a simple and worshipful appeal. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
