To The King! (no label, no #) 1978
This particular Hosanna is the Virginia trio of Tim Seaman, Rowena Seaman and Hallet Hullinger. To The King! is a beautiful dreamy acoustic custom featuring gentle melodies adrift in ﬂoating 12-string guitar, piano, ethereal ﬂute and soft moving male/female harmonies. Groups like Rising Hope, Patrnos and Suncast all excelled at this style, and Hosanna carries you away with the best of them via stirring songs like “Song Of Solomon’, ‘It’s Not A Hard Thing’ and ‘He Is Able’. Also a few playful country-folk moods ala Parable or Phoenix Sonshine on tracks like ‘Joy In My Soul’ and ‘I Will Rejoice’. Tim’s ﬂute work is especially sharp throughout, sounding quite classical and frolicsome on ‘What Has My Life Been’. All ten songs written by Hallet. Petra’s Louie Weaver appears on drums. Produced by Monty Matthews of Holy Kiss Productions, though this is not on the actual Holy Kiss label. Superb watercolor cover painting of the city of Jerusalem.
