War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne. (Progressive Rock)

Would normally spend Good Friday listening to the Jesus Christ Super Star album. Twenty/twenty Good Friday I listened to Jeff Wayne’s 1978 original War of the Worlds.

War of the Worlds Album Cover

This original version included Richard Burton as narrator (journalist). Also Justin Hayward, David Essex (artillery man), Phil Lynott (Parson Nathanial) Julie Covington (Beth).

Give it a go if you don’t know it. I was blown away!

Palm Sunday

Today, Sunday 5th April 2020 is Palm Sunday in the Christian calendar. It commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent.
