Les Reflets: De l'abondance du coeur, la bouche parle (Out of the Abundance of the Heart, the Mouth Speaks)

When we think of “contemporary” Christian music, most of us restrict ourselves to the US, or throw in the UK for good measure.  But the revolution in Christian music in the 1960’s and 1970’s went far beyond the Anglophone world, and this album–from France–may be the best example of that.

It’s conventional wisdom to characterise Christian music of any kind as “not quite as good” as its secular counterpart.  That conventional wisdom needs to be thrown out with this one: it’s a fantastic representative of European folk music, up to the including the recited Poème, where one feels like reaching for the beret.  That’s evidenced by the fact that secular people struggle with the album: they love the music but the lyrics drive them crazy.  But that’s what happens when we always follow the “conventional wisdom” (cf. 1 Cor 1:18)

The songs:

  1. L’océan
  2. Ma vie
  3. Le navire
  4. Ecclésiaste 12.3
  5. La barbe
  6. Stopotan
  7. L’amitié
  8. La vérité
  9. Poème (Jean Peysson)
  10. Romance
  11. O Seigneur !

  1. I don’t know if these albums are available in CD or not. I have never seen them on CD.

    If you find that they are, let me know and I will link to the CD sale. Thanks.
