|Title: Now Is The Time - Reed's Temple Choir|
Subtitle: New Haven Records
Release date: October 2005
When it comes to traditional choirs,there’s something about the way the Hammond B-3 organ harkens back to the day when air conditioning was a handheld fan from the funeral home and the sound system was the soprano section. But no matter how nostalgic it gets,the gospel message is just as relevant for our society today as it was in the days of the campmeeting and the circuit rider.
Joe B. Reed started the Reeds Temple Choir of Griffith,Indiana,over 40 years ago. It’s one of the few choirs that actually writes and records music that the church can use…masterpieces for the masses. The songs were selected with the intention of ministers of music across the country teaching the great songs to their local choirs.
Now New Haven Records brings you the brand new live recording “Now Is The Time”,featuring all new traditional songs that Reeds Temple Choir is known for.
