Everything Sings (no label, no #) 1978

 

 

Charming Catholic folk custom featuring warm sincere female vocals (both solo and harmony), backed by a simple fresh blend of acoustic guitar, electric bass and percussion, plus occasional electric guitar and recorder. Often a jangly upbeat vibe, as heard on ‘New Generation’, ‘Everything Passes’ and ‘Joy Is My Life’. Moody minor-key songs like the recorder-backed ‘The Red Flower’ and the ballad ‘Your Name’ are equally effective. Soft electric leads work their way into ‘My Secret’, ‘His Word’, the title track and the brisk hypnotic jingling ‘Too Small Is The World’. Part of the Focolare Movement whose aim is to “work for unity in order to give its contribution toward the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer to the Father, ‘May they all be one . They have at least one other album (1981’s You Found Me), plus a 7” single. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Discogs for the rear cover photo and track list.
