John Lockley - Music
For a number of years in the late sixties
and early seventies I was involved, first with the Cambridge University
Twentieth Century Church Light Music Group (what a mouthful!), which was later
abbreviated to 'Twentieth Century'. Several of their records and tapes contain
music that I'd composed, most notably 'A Folk Passion' (RL305), which
was a complete LP of a modern folk/rock oratorio about the crucifixion.
Other recordings containing some of my
songs include the LP 'Hosanna - A Portrait of Jesus' (RL307), and the
cassette tape 'Travelling
Salvation Road Show'.(TCRW1)
Two of my songs - 'In the long and lonely
days' (which is on the 'Hosanna' record - words by Peter Casey), and my
arrangement of 'Do you see that man' by Peter Casey and Alan Thomas, are
published in 'Songs of Worship' by Scripture Union (ISBN 0 85421 865 3).
After leaving Cambridge, some of the original members of
'Twentieth Century' founded 'Reflection' and its recording arm 'Reflection
Records', and I was active with them for a time.

University group 'Twentieth Century'
continued its existance at Cambridge as 'C20' which
then became Ark,
which now has two aspects - the music arm (with two bands, one light rock and
the other acid-jazz) and the acting arm. To find out more about them (or to
book them for a performance) click here:- Ark - the web site
- In 1982 I wrote a complete folk/rock/classical musical on the
life of Martin Luther. Called simply 'Luther!' it was originally
written for a musically talented school and features an orchestra extended
by a rock band. If you are interested in putting it on, please click here to E-mail me
- I’m now actively writing music for use
in church services – hymns, songs, anthems and other music.
