“New Rain” — The Story of Jesus in Song

“New Rain” is a collection of songs about the life of Jesus that I wrote in the early 1970s. These recordings were done with a group including me, Lois Rose, Irene Vassos and Larry and Alice Spatz. Alice did much of the arrangement and composed the tune of the initial and closing lyrics (Example: He rode to the city …). We performed this all throughout New England for about two years. It was pressed as a record. Click here for a look at the cover and a review of the album.

Here are my recordings of the album in four sections. The entire work runs around 50 minutes or so.
