Let Us Be One (Torch Record 201)  1982

 

 

Very nice fragile melodic folk custom from six Brothers of the Western Dominican Province, robed in white and benignly posing with guitar, upright bass, banjo, autoharp, bongos and mandolin. Heartfelt acoustic ballads beside gentle upbeat toe-tappers sometimes with a bluegrass edge. Mostly originals plus ‘Leave It There’, ‘Come ‘N’ Dine’ and ‘Somebody Touched Me/Do Lord’. Similar to early St. Louis Jesuits in their pre-choral days. Nice to see this style still thriving in 1979. Followed by Let Us Be One (1982) and The Time Is Now (1984).    (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
