Where New Winds Blow (Caves UHC 2) 1975 UK *
Second album in a series that began with Cave Of Living Streams (see entry). The themes this time are wind, breath and breeze — symbols of the Holy Spirit. Although guitar and drums are present, Where New Winds Blow is even more steeped in the style of sacred classical music than Cave Of Living Streams, especially with regard to the vocals where the operatic singers are majestically rolling their R’s (three male vocalists, one female soprano). Musical backing is provided by the Hallé Orchestra, which is actually just eight people playing such instruments as violin, viola, cello, bass, oboe and horn. Even when the guitar is in the forefront, the mood is definitely classical, like Christopher Parkening. If you go after either of these two albums, make sure you’re aware of what you’re getting.
