5.0 out of 5 stars Folk-rock genius Aug. 13 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Magna Carta have been a cornerstone of English folk-rock since the early 70's. If you enjoy Fairport Convention, The Strawbs and Barclay James Harvest then this is a must have for you. It is the bardic album that gave Magna Carta world recognition. The founding member and inspiration for the band, Chris Simpson, is still recording but the band have had to endure constant reshuffles and replacements. Their music remains true however and is the insiration for many young up-and-coming bands. This is Chris Simpson's masterpiece and it is glorious. I also recommend Magna Catra: Gold as a terrific compilation of the band's musical genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGNIFICIENT March 30 2008
By T. Blanc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Only gems on this album, as Magna Carta had always delivered so far...
The addition of Gordon Huntley (steel-guitar), previously member of the excellent Matthews Southern Comfort sure does'nt hurt.
Each track is beautifully written, polished, played ans sung. Beautiful arrangements of voices, guitars & everything... A dream come true...
Christopher Simpsons' songs are (at least) as good as ever here, but the title number "Lord of the Ages" reaches biblical dimensions here for sure... Strangely, I can never listen to the number "Father John" (with its trhilling accappella chorus) without thinking of Beatles (Paul)'s "Eleanor Rigby"...
Every song on this album is pure magic.
In any case, highly recommended to every Simon & Garfunkel fan, they'll get the British version of S&G and much more... And to anyone who appreciates music...

how can that be? Yes, I have listened to Magna Carta and indeed own the very album (vinyl, hence kinda hard to enjoy nowadays). what a shame - even had the pleasure to see the group twice in Germany, during the eighties though.
