Sometimes a particular work from an artist proves to be timeless and it enjoys enduring popularity for decades. Such is certainly the case with ’The Passion’, arguably Adrian Snell’s best known work. What began as half of his debut lp ’Fireflake’ and included songs that aimed to picture the unique and deep love of Christ in His walk and sacrifice on Earth, ultimately turned into a full work that has been deemed a mixture of progressive rock, choral and pop elements. A groundbreaking work that features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with some of the worlds finest rock musicians: Simon Phillips (drums), John Perry (bass), Dzal Martin, Kevin Peake, and Gordon Giltrap (guitars).
Originally released in 1980, ’The Passion’ has now been remixed by Jamie Snell, whose mixing credits include Ellie Goulding, Dua Lipa and Paloma Faith. The new mix was mastered at Metropolis Studios by Matt Colton ( Peter Gabriel & Coldplay). With the anniversary of the genesis of these songs and the 45th anniversary of the original album on the horizon, the time is right for a refreshed, remixed and mastered edition of ’The Passion’!
Experience ’the Passion anew with stunning new mixes! Thanks to the discovery of the original master recordings, the project has been lovingly refreshed to sound better than ever. And in good time: original editions of ’The Passion’, both on vinyl and CD are out of print.
The new ’Anniversary Edition’ of ’The Passion’ will be released on CD and high quality 180 gram vinyl, acccompanied by a 20 page booklet (the CD will include a 25 page booklet). Included with the album (both formats) is a bonus download!
