More Than The Sands (S80 1546S) 1977?
More Than The Sands is another fine achievement for the melodic Catholic folk style. The album ﬂows with a warm moving elegance, calm stirring harmonies complemented by acoustic guitars, piano, bass and ﬂute. Recalls the best of the PAA label (Tim Schoenbachler, He Shall Be Peace, Marty Haugen) or perhaps the St. Louis Jesuits without the choir and orchestration. Trumpet on a couple tracks ﬁts in ﬁne. The group is composed of five men (Brad Hinze, Rich Meyette, Tom Kommers, John Mischke and ‘Greg Tolaas) from St. John Vianney Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. An uplifting set of sixteen original songs. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
