An appropriately titled album celebrating ten years of existence for the St. Edmund’s Folk Choir. Credits identify four musicians (lead and bass guitars, electric guitar, 12-string acoustic guitar, flute), twenty singers and two soloists. Still retains that endearing small ensemble quality through soft electric covers of Godspell (‘Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord’, ‘By My Side”), Sacred Heart Choir (‘Roll That Stone Away’) and Tom Paxton (‘Peace Will Come’). Also a couple more versions of songs written by Stephen Church from So Confusing And So Very Clear (which I’m beginning to suspect may be the same group), including ‘To Jesus On His Birthday’ and ‘So Confusing And So Very Clear’, the latter closing out the album with lively fuzz guitar. Other Church titles include ‘All That You Believe’, ‘Psalm 131’ and ‘1 Close My Eyes’. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
