A New Song (Laurel SLP-2709) 1977



Yet another Friends, this one is a small Catholic female group. A New Song is an exceptionally pretty recording of moody reflective folk originals. Harmonies and instruments are in perfect balance here, acoustic guitars, bass, flute and piano interlacing to create a very moving delicate beauty. ‘Gracious God’ even benefits from some soft yet penetrating electric guitar backing. Reminds me of some of the dreamier tracks on the Medical Mission Sisters’ album Seasons. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.  Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo.
