Rick Wakeman - The Word & The Gospels mp3 album

The work is split into four sections, corresponding to the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, with the songs in each based on various episodes in the life of Jesus as related in each gospel. The cast features narrator Robert Powell, operatic tenor Ramon Remedios, and the Eton College Choir, with Wakeman on keyboards and electronic percussion. The music is more subdued than most of Wakeman's rock work, with little of the grandiloquence of his early epics. Wakeman's own playing, though not without interest, is also more restrained than usual
