EWELL CASTLE SCHOOL MUSIC GROUP (aka The Pilgrim Band) - "Omnibus" (1979 School project LP)


Located in Epsom, Surrey, Ewell Castle School is a school for boys ages 3-18 and girls ages 3-11.
Founded in 1926, it continues operation today.
In the 1970s, LPs were made of 2 different musical/theatrical presentations, one in 1974 and one in 1979.
These are what are commonly known as School Project LPs.
The first LP Pilgrim was based on John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress.
The 2nd LP, called Omnibus, consisted of parts of 3 different presentations: "Gawain and the Green Knight", "Celestial Omnibus", and "The Gold Road".
These performances featured student actors with musical accompaniment.
The first album was recorded at R.G. Jones Studios in Wimbledon and Omnibus was recorded at Pye Recording Studios, London.
On both LPs, the music was written by Peter Back and the lyrics by John Andrews.
