Buy it if you love great musicals!

By My Side is beautifully sung and will bring you to tears, and On The Willows, one of my personal favorite songs from the show leaves me breathless.
A. McKay
This is a great recording of new arrangements from the 2011 Broadway revival of Godspell by the Original revival cast.

I am bias in my review, as I am a huge Godspell fan having seen it over 50 times in every venue you can imagine. I saw the New Broadway cast last week and they are the best of the best. They are all charming, fresh, charismatic, young actors with amazing voices. The new cast album captures the life and energy of the live experience. Of the eight Godspell cast albums that I own this is one of favorites in that the new cast and arrangements has made this album as relevant today as the original was to the protest filled early 70's. Now instead of Hippy Clowns we have I-phone addicted yuppies transformed into vibrant urban street performers. If you are in New York see this show before it is gone, as in an age of heartless high tech shows I am not sure if the modern theatergoer is too jaded to sit back take in the joy and energy of the show which is so much more than a sum of its parts. If your not in New York get this CD. Its a great way to take a little piece of this timeless theatrical miracle home.

Maybe my title is mean: this is certainly not a bad recording of this wonderful show, it's just ... tidy.

Case in point: "By My Side". Any admirer of "Godspell" knows how haunting this can be. In this recording, unfortunately, the singers have decided that the music and lyrics are too under-stated: they overwhelm the song with that awful fake emotion that is rife on shows like the international "Idol" talent contests and "Glee". You know, never be content with one note when a syllable can be drawn out to allow three, make sure the audience knows they are supposed to be moved by adopting a caricature of sadness in your voice.

I could go on, but no recording of "Godspell" leaves me in an overly nasty mood, and there are certainly good things here. The new arrangement of "All Good Things" is the best I've heard, "Learn Your Lessons" and "All for the Best" are as exuberant and cheeky as they should be, and the new lyrics of "Beautiful City" make moving and tasteful reference to the terrorist attacks on New York without interrupting the flow.

If, like me, you have a few recordings of this show, then this one is certainly a worthy addition to your collection. For what it's worth, I think that on CD the film soundtrack Godspell: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (now available here: Godspell: 40th Anniversary Celebration is the best of the lot.

While no CD can encapsulate the spectacle and phenomenon that is a Broadway show, the Godspell CD surely captures the spirit, joy, reverance, and excitement of this musical. The orchestrations are wondrous. The cast is amazing--they truly make you feel the emotion of Godspell, and their voices are second to none. To top it all off, you can hear and understand every word, so the story comes through almost as if the actors were transporting you to the Circle in the Square Theater. In fact, upon listening to this fabulous music (over and over, I'm sure)--that's just where you'll want to be!

I enjoyed the recent Broadway revival. I found it high in entertainment value, but a bit hollow. It entertained me without moving me. I feel the same about this recording. It is well sung, but a little over done for my liking. The vocal arrangements are harmonically fuller and more difficult than the original 1970's versions. The arrangements sound too much like "Glee" for my taste. The vocalese arrangement of The Prologue (Tower of Babble) is fun to listen to, but is it Godspell? I prefer Godspell to be simpler and more straight forward.

You cannot fault the cast. They sing the stuffing out of the score. I am particularly fond of Telly's "All Good Gifts" and his Entre Acte version of "Learn Your Lessons Well" Although, I wish the recording would have kept Telly's live performance introduction where he starts out with the opening vamp of" Magic to Do" from Pippin and a quick seque to Wicked before finally arriving at "Learn Your Lessons Well".

Hunter Parrish acquits himself well on this recording. Onstage I found him to be a little bland and a bit of a "pretty boy front man" (to borrow a phrase from another Broadway Rock Musical). Live, he gets a little lost amidst the entire cast, but on the new cast recording he makes a very sweet and earnest Jesus. His "Beautiful City" is one of the standout songs on the disc.

Overall, this version should be a part of your collection.

This is a great recording of new arrangements from the 2011 Broadway revival of Godspell by the Original revival cast. If you wore out your 1970's LP's and tapes of the seminal Godspell, you will love this - really! None what you loved is destroyed - and amazing new lyrics and arrangements will interest and hook you. Beautiful City alone is reason enough to buy this - don't think of the cheery movie version - there are newish words and a great performance by Hunter Parrish that take this song somewhere special. So buy it! Also, go see the show while you can - it's the most fun you'll ever have in a theater.

The singers were amazing. Harmonies brought the songs to new levels. Best part is the songs did not lose there original vibe or melody. Love it !
