Additional Information
Comments After his avant-garde mixed media project with "Intersystems" in 1968, and then stints with "Kensington Market" and "Syrinx", John Mills-Cockell spent a couple of years in Europe soaking up old world influences for the recording there of "A Third Testament", the score to the CBC/Time-Life series of the same name. "A Third Testament" was a six-part series exploring issues of faith and religion through the likes of St. Augustine, Kierkegaard and Tolstoy among others, and the music here reflects the depth of the series, grafting pipe organ and choral elements onto Mills-Cockell's trademark Moog tinkering. As with most soundtracks, what would normally be fully-fleshed out pieces are mere snippets, with many tracks clocking in at under three minutes. His first solo album, "A New Testament" would anchor a long and fruitful career for Mills-Cockell's compositions for film and the theatre.

Approximately 9 inch square, multi-page booklet included with illustrations, lyrics and credits.
