John Ylvisaker LOVE SONG Vinyl Record

John Ylvisaker LOVE SONG Vinyl Record
Our popular musical culture is maturing into an extremely exciting art form, combining the strength of traditional sources with the courage of young poets and the experimentation of the 'serious' music composers (as if the others were not serious). It is an ideal time for the church to recognize the importance of a contemporary musical expression and the validity of our popular culture. Music is not dogma, but rather a cultural expression of the people who use it. On this album you will find twelve selections written in a conservatively modern style, drawing from Biblical material for it's textual content. The musical style varies a good deal as to rhythm, tempo, instrumentation and mood, but the text has a theme running through it, the theme of the album title. In Ezekiel 33 the prophet laments the fact that the people come to him only because he sings well and plays his instrument well; they hear what he is saying in the 'love songs' but they will not respond to them. This is the text of 'A Love Song'. The other pieces deal with the same kind of ironic love from the love of Pharaoh for his adopted son Moses, to the love of Joseph for his 'adopted' son, Jesus; from the love of Hosea for his prostitute wife, Gomer, to the love of Jesus for the prostitute, Mary; from the love of Amos for his stiff-necked people to the love of Jesus for the desolate people of Jerusalem. - John Ylvisaker, 1968.
