St Edmund's Folk Choir - We Sang Our Songs Upon A Hill

 

Scarce private press from UK folk ensemble whose stirring presence is comparable to Cloud, 11:59, Valley Of Achor or (crossing the Big Pond) God Unlimited. Acoustic guitars, soft male/female harmonies and periodic solo singing lead the way, backed by bass, piano and gentle echoed electric guitar. I’d guess there to be around ten or so members in the group. Most songs written by Stephen Church, three of which appear on the equally rare So Confusing And So Very Clear lp (the title track, ‘It’s Better That I Go” and ‘Psalm 18’). Also covers of ‘Silent Night’, ‘All ‘My Trials’ and ‘Day Is Done’. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
