This week’s podcast takes us to inner city Chicago, where Peter Scholtes put together one of the most interesting (if not the most polished) productions of early post-Vatican II Catholic Music. The song featured is Choose Life, with a decidedly "African" sound.
It comes from the album They’ll Know We are Christians By Our Love, the title track of which is, IMHO, the theme song for the "Contract on the Episcopalians." That notwithstanding, you can tell that Scholtes and his inner city congregation had a lot of fun with this album, inclusing the "Missa Bossa Nova," which I remember using in college.
The rest of this album is at The Ancient Star-Song.
