Und Erbarmt Sich Seiner Elenden  (Schwann AMS Studio ‎  15012)  1965 Germany * 7″, 45 RPM EP



This one is not found in The Archivist, however due to the popularity of Peters other albums and being that at least so far this record appears to be Peters dedut release.  I found this while researching the other albums that are in The Archivist for updated information. Discogs has this one listed as Jazz. There are 5 tracks on this EP the first 4 being composed by Peter with Christine Heuser writing the lyrics.  The vocalist is Barbara Klein.  A choir called The Spiritual Students probably provides background vocals.  There are tenor Sax and a trombone also on the record. I have not acquired the record yet so I can not provide additional information or review.  This is housed in a gate-fold cover.  The title means “And have mercy on His wretches”     diakoneo


Thank you Discogs for the photos and the track list.
