More information: 'The Bible' is the first full blown concept album and the most ambitious work that Peter Gee has ever written, over a total of 69 minutes, and showcases the amazing vocal talents of Josh Brown, Becky Brannigan and Hayley Oliver, with regular Steve Christey (Jadis) on drums. The album also features the beautiful instrumental playing of Rhiannon Davies on violin and Daniel Bristow on trumpet.
Peter Gee says that this is an album that he has wanted to make for the whole of his life, and this project has now been realised, through the three key elements of: the music, produced by Peter Gee and Rob Aubrey (producer of Big Big Train and IQ), the wonderful narration by John Taylor, and the stunning cover illustration by Simon Williams (who painted the covers for “The Masquerade Overture,” “The Window Of Life” and “The World” albums by Pendragon).
Peter Gee once again displays a wonderful breadth of writing styles on “The Bible”, from the progressive “Revelation,” “The Kingdom Of God” and “The Prophets” to rock anthems “The Fall” and “The Law”, from the haunting female vocal pieces “Adam And Eve” and “The Gospel” to the acoustic “Samson And Delilah” and “Exodus,” from instrumentals “Jacob’s Ladder” and Walls Of Jericho,” to the groove based “Crossing The Sea” and “Spirit,” and yet the whole album has a wonderful power and unity to it.
If you like Pendragon’s music, or if you just like good rock music, progressive structures and songs with melody and emotion, then you will love this album! This is an album that that you can really enter into the world that it evokes, and the story that it tells, and immerse yourself within it – everything that a good concept album should do.
