WHY JOAN OF ARC? This CD is dedicated to the most attested figure in history up to the 16th century. She is THE YOUNGEST (at 17 years old) SUPREME COMMANDER of the military forces (male OR female.) throughout all of recorded history. The same church that burned her at the stake made her a Saint 500 years later. Her life has many striking similarities to the life of Jesus of Nazareth. For example: centering her life around prayer to the God of the Bible, her kindness and affinity for the poor and unwanted, a sham trial, an unjust death, asking for the forgiveness of her persecutors even as she was being led to the stake, her always unerring and specific prophecies---and a number of others.

This project was a little different from most. Here are some of the reasons why:

EACH PIECE begins with a quote of Joan of Arc spoken in her native French tongue, backed by music and ‘atmospheric enhancers’, and this leads into a music composition.

THE MUSIC IS a mixture of many styles including: contemporary instrumental/new age/classical/electronic/space/ and ambient.
THE 14 PAGE CD BOOKLET contains a wealth of information and images, including the English translation of Joan’s words and relevant Bible verses.
Instrumentation: Kurzweil 25OO, Ensoniq TS-10, Korg O1-W, 2 ADAT 8 Track Digital Recorders, Spirit Soundboard, Electra electric guitar, Alesis Quadraverb effects unit, and various other sound producers.

ARTIST BIO: Chris spent the late 1960’s-1985 playing mostly drums, and some guitar and keyboards with several different bands. In Texas these included THE DANCING BEAR, THE MENERALS, BEAUMONT AND GOULD, and EAKIN’ FROUT. In California WHEAT and THE VISIONS. He spent 5 years in Europe, including one year playing drums with PRIDE OF TEXAS in Holland, and one year playing lead guitar with TYRONE SCOTT AND TRUTH in Paris, France and northern Africa. Among the styles he played were rock, country, jazz, blues, and various combinations of them all.

He played with several different bands as warm-up bands for big names such as IKE AND TINA TURNER, SONNY AND CHER, THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION, CHUCK BERRY, and the NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND. In 1985 he began experimenting more with electronic keyboards, which led to his first solo release NEW DAWN. This was followed in 1988 by LEPRECHAUN HILL. In 1992 he released CROSSING OVER. Then in 1995 his first critically acclaimed CD was released, entitled FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. Followed in 1999 by NUMBER OUR DAYS.

“I had a lot of help on this 4 year project. Clark Rice loaned his many musical talents to several of the pieces on this CD, and Catherine Henon spoke the original French words of Joan of Arc. Janet Powell was responsible for the beautiful CD package design. My sincere thanks to them all.” Chris S.
