"Wyrd War has reignited Sister Irene O'Connor's mystical hymns of devotion and delivered them from the outposts of obscurity to be enjoyed once again on vinyl! Recorded by nuns Sister O’Connor and Sister Marimil Lobregat on electric organ, piano, guitar and heavy doses of reverb in 1973 at the Catholic Radio and Television Centre in Sydney, Australia, Fire of God’s Love is a haunting musical communion teetering somewhere between Hildegard von Bingen and The Space Lady...on the hills of Meggido! Fans of Wyrd War’s previous releases Music From Enchanted Forest and Wizards soundtrack will delight in these twelve sparse and perplexing songs of beatific whimsy and apocalyptic esoterica.
Out of print since the 1976 U.S. repress, this extremely limited edition lovingly replicates the original Australian pressing album design and has been masterfully restored by Timothy Stollenwerk. This release is a benefit for Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the only Oregon non-profit entirely devoted to the preservation of one of the Pacific Northwest's most cherished wilderness areas, to support the reforestation and continued protection of Eagle Creek in the aftermath of the September 2, 2017 fire that burned for three months before it was declared contained and extinguished.
'Keep this little thought in mind my friend, existence in this world is not our end...'"
Fans of In Solitude may recognize the opening track, "Fire..."
