Antioch (K&R KRS-1081) 1981

 

Antioch front

Antioch is a seven-man folk outfit led by composers Joe Miksik, Dennis Westphal and Gerald Westphal.  They have an elegant melodic style similar to a lot of the late-70’s Catholic releases, gently mixing such instruments as classical and acoustic guitars, piano and flute.  Even some mellotron providing beauty and atmosphere to several tracks.  A co-ed vocal ensemble provides distant background harmonies in spots, blending in practically unnoticed.  No strings or horns, relying instead on simple arrangements that emphasise the lyrical flow of the songs.  Small Ray Repp label.    (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
