GospelPan, there is a remake of it on a vintage CD by Mystic Prowler,but he only sang two verses. It would really be nice if you at least hear that. It was about the first time pan played in a church (The Port of Spain Cathedral) lovely lyrics.
Words: Many years ago,they used to call it outcast
But eventually, it finally came to pass
Ah talking 'bout the steelpan music of Trinidad,Started with some oildrum down in a backyard,
Ah win ah bet with one Mr. Birch,telling him one day pan will be played in church.
Chorus: Who ever thought that the day would come,
When yuh could go to the church and hear steel pan,
Tell me who ever thought that the day would reach,
When steelpan music will play while the reverand preach?
Now let us all say amen,amen I say for the panmen,
Tell me who ever thought we would see the day,
When steelpan music would play while we kneel and pray
Verse: Well my friends what I want you to know,
Pan could play anything, from classic to calypso,
Imagine if Beethoven was alive today, I wonder what he was going to say
He would have arranged for piano and organ, then come and arrange for the ping pong pan.
@Gerald, thanks for that bit of historical information...I am extremely excited by it because the late , great Lord Bryner is one of my favorite Calypsonians, however I didn't know he wrote a 'Pan in Church' song. I believe God gave him that title at that time for the people, and now He has given it to me for this time in history. It's fascinating because Lord Bryner's daughter is my sister-in-law, so at least the title remains in the family. Do you have a copy of the song as we would very much like to hear it...blessings.
Pretty good, but the name Pan In Church belongs to Lord Bryner whose calypso with that name was a hit in 1966.
