Godspell. Original 1971 London cast recording.



“Godspell” is a 1970 musical that opened Off Broadway on May 17, 1971, and has played in various touring companies and revivals many times since. Several cast albums have been released over the years. A junior version under the title “Godspell Junior” has also been made. The difference is that it is a one-act version with some songs removed.  The structure of the musical is that of a series of parables, based on the Gospel of Matthew. “Day by Day” from the original cast album, reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in the summer of 1972.  A film version of the musical was released in 1973, set in modern New York.
