Happy The Man (St. Francis  SFPS-2) 1967

 

 

A typical example of Sebastian Temple in the folk/pop format, or “folk-baroque” as the sleeve describes it.  Not as interesting as his purely acoustic records (such as the excellent Moses In Story & Song).  For one, the melodies all tend to be very simple, often like children’s songs.  The guitar is also overshadowed by the woodwinds (oboe, bassoon, flute  — the “baroque” angle I guess) and marimba.  Includes ‘Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace’, one of his best known songs.     (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
