Here is a Gold Disc hit album from 1973, with beautiful songs performed with taste, skill and sophistication – these are the hallmarks of Magna Carta’s musical output that reached a creative peak on this outstanding album.

‘Lord Of The Ages’ was the fifth release by a British group that took folk music into a new dimension during the early 1970s. All the songs are written by founder member Chris Simpson and vary in mood from the gentle lilting introspection of ‘Wish It Was’ and ‘Two Old Friends’, to the dynamic title track that evolves into an aggressive blues-style workout.

A strong rhythm section, including Gerry Conway on drums and Danny Thompson on String Bass, supports the front line of Chris Simpson and Stan Gordon, both on guitar and vocals, and the sensitive lead vocals of Glen Stuart.

The whole band blends rock and folk styles with consummate ease on a superb folk-rock album, presented in a dramatic Roger Dean designed sleeve.
