TORONTO – March 18, 2021 – PRLog — Sonorous Records Inc is releasing 8 original and remastered tracks by the Brewster Singers under the title of Old Time Religion. Each track has been digitally remastered and enhanced from the original recordings. Special care was taken to ensure the quality and integrity of the original sound. This is more than music, it is gospel history. “It is an understatement to call the recordings historic” states Cavric managing partner of Sonorous.
The group was formed by W.H. Brewster. Reverend Brewster wrote more than 200 songs which were performed by dozens of different performers during the period between 1945 and 1960, also known as the Golden Age Of Gospel Music. Apart from his vast legacy in the genre of black gospel music, Brewster also had a formative influence on a young Elvis Presley. Elvis occasionally attended services at the East Trigg Avenue Baptist Church and listened to Brewster’s sermons which were broadcast on Sunday night.
According to well placed sources Brewster constantly preached on the theme that a better day was coming, one in which all men could walk as brothers. Other performers influenced by Brewster were Mahalia Jackson and Clara Ward, just to mention a few.
