Service Of Holy Communion (Carillon CR201) 1971?
Also titled Songs From Contemporary Worship. This is not an essential Ylvisaker item, as it’s mainly classically-influenced choral/folk with liturgical portions. Still there are some intriguing edgier moments. For example, many of the spoken passages have an eerie feel, with mysterious psych-textured bass, acoustic and electric guitar supplying the background groove. John is the composer as well as director of the instrumentalists. You can hear him singing once or twice, but more often the vocals are provided by the Carillon Singers and children’s Carillon Choristers. Edith Norgberg is listed as director (of the singers I’m assuming). Should strike a familiar chord with those raised on the modern ‘70s Lutheran service. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
