Lovely homemade lp of quiet somber folk meditations of the Catholic variety from unnamed Michigan ensemble. Titles like ‘A Little Child Will Lead You’, ‘I Have Loved You’, ‘Evening Psalm’, ‘I Thank My God For You’ and ‘Behold The Handmaid’ have a gentle moody melodic presence, stirring male/female harmonies warmly backed by soft-jangling acoustic guitar, plus flute, recorder, dulcimer, metalaphone, finger cymbals, tambourine, etc. Primitive production gives the recording kind of a distant hazy quality. Sounds a little like Medical Mission Sisters when it’s just the girls. Composed and arranged by Mary McGann and Margo Morris. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
