Songs For The Journey (Fontaine House 36400) 1979












Fourteen tracks, some of them being of the short liturgical variety. Nice use of autoharp and dulcimer on the opening ‘My Shepherd Is The Lord’. Attractive flute presence on a number of tracks. ‘Ave Maria – Hail Mary’ incorporates the classical Schubert melody, while ‘Jesus Was Asleep’ provides a childlike Caribbean diversion. Wise continued to record on into the ‘80s. He also has some children’s albums to his credit. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
