Joy Of My Life (no label, no #) 1976








Sister Chiara Marie - Joy Of My Life







Another pleasant gentle acoustic album from a Catholic Sister. Her full title is Sr. Rose Marie St. Germain, PBVM, although my copy has that crossed out. replaced with “now Sr. Chiara Marie of Jesus Crucified P.C.C.” Quiet guitar-backed ballads featuring two voices (self harmony?) and all original titles like ‘Prayer (Strengthen Us To Follow You)’, ‘Forever Spring’, ‘Out Of Darkness’, ‘There In The Heavens’. ‘Sparrow’ (backed by chirping bird sounds), ‘Not Until The Seed Has Died’ and ‘Now Is A Rainbow Time’. Blank cover with 5×7 stickers front (color flower design) and back (song titles), with blank white record labels. Obviously a-very limited home-made press. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
