I wanted to blast back to the 1970s for a moment and write about some of my favorite Christian/Liturgical music of the era. The 'Folk Mass' was a new thing within the Catholic Church. For me it was a breath of fresh air. This was a time of being introduced to music by Catholic musicians (who played guitar rather than organ) as well as that of other denominations. One of the artists I found myself drawn to as a teenager was Joe Wise. In 1970 he released an album titled 'A New Day'.
A few of my favorite tracks off the album are:
Lord, Teach us to Pray,
Lord Give Me a Heart of Flesh,
All I am I Give to You,
Come to Me.
A few of the shorter tunes were written to be used as responses during Mass.
From what I have found this album is only available in vinyl or MP3 download.
You can listen to it in its entirety by following this YouTube link.
