The Trees – The Christ Tree (1975)

Unclassifiable, avant-garde christian music, renditions of liturgical songs on a few dozen of world instruments by this proto freak-folk act!

The performers are Bruce Gambill, David Lynch, Katheryn “Shishonee” Krupa, Margueret Blythe, Mary Vukman, Patricia Gambill, Stephen Gambill and William “Shipen” Lebzelter.

“Their stylistic inclusiveness unequivocally implies a diplomacy of faith rather than cultural robbery. A perfect mess of musical history and geography, “Psalm 42″ is indicative of the band’s open-forum aesthetic, driven by an inclusive form of Christianity that today is missing in action.” (Liz Colville)
