2nd Chapter Of Acts

This major Christian-rock act, which began in the early '70s, were defined by the sibling harmonies of Annie Herring, Matthew Ward, and Nelly Greisen. Their music brought complex song structures to inspirational music. Their best-known song was 1974's "Easter Song," which achieved moderate mainstream radio airplay (and featured Michael Been, later founder of The Call, on bass). The group's self-deprecating attitudes may have kept them from achieving the renown of some contemporaries. Herring and Ward continued to record solo projects after the group disbanded in 1988. ~ Brian Mansfield, Rovi

These guys (pardon expression) are what won my little brother over back in about 83'. Forever GRATEFUL:D
*got BAPTISED later, auto correct... In a Bible Church now but the youth group climbers WERE Baptists, from Santa Barbara. I think it's the Baptist's job to usher folk into the faith! Lol
Ha ha, so fun reading comment of Mary Carvill (private profile, sadly!) I can so relate to the love of this group, the "not knowing Christian music (outside of classic hymns) even existed... And I was saved when a group of rock climbers IN YOSEMITE spoke to me. I prayed with their leader, then emerged from the woods at the top of a falls to see a beautiful vista and rainbows. I got baptists later, but perhaps first by the spray and water dribbling along the trail down...
Was given 2nd Chapter music when I was newly saved, early 80's. Music as cool now as then. Pandora,thx for keeping it a foundational Christian group, current. But I can't make a track comment, so just sayin' here, I'm enjoying the song "Night Light" blessings, any new listeners!
Self-depreca t i n g is another word for humble. They were some of the stalwarts & of holdouts of what was originally called Jesus Music Ministry before it mutated into the Contemporary Christian Music Industry. IMHO.
This group has always been my most favorite Christian group. And I have followed Annie in her solo efforts and was so blessed this passed Christmas to hear Matthew Ward,in person, sing his favorite Christmas carols! A must hear for all you fans is To the Bride' Barry McGuire features 2ndCOA in a live concert..awe s o m e ! !
I travelled with my Thomaston, Me., youth group to see the 2nd COA at one of the host church's, I think. There were a # of churches from various denomination s that would get together by youth groups on weekends - this is how God so inspired me and got me thru tough times! Also we saw Don Francisco and Honeytree... good old times! Thanks, Pandora! Plus I love Selah, whom I would never have discovered without Pandora. Thanks!

Thanks John for correcting Pandora! I love the live album with Phil Keaggy and 2CA
2nd Chapter of Acts has ALWAYS been one of my favorite Contemporary Christian Groups !! Annie Herring sings with a voice that touches my heart always..& Matthew Ward is ..well ... A true vessel of God
Uh, Pandora, Love Broke Through is actually Phil Keaggy, not 2nd Chapter of Acts.
Hymns I & II...epic works.
Thank you for adding music by the 2nd Chapter of Acts!!!!! They were such an inspiration in my walk with the Lord through out my life. I miss their inspired music a lot and love hearing it again!
2nd Chapter of Acts is also a huge inspiration to my all-time favorite Christian singer, Dennis Jernigan. He accepted the Lord at one of their concerts.
@bro.gregmcf a r l i n My favorite 2nd Chapter of Acts song and album is Mansion Builder.
I like The Roar Of Love (missing here) but my all time favorite album is How The West Was Won. (and that's not just all time favorite of theirs, but my all time favorite from anybody, Keaggy is fantastic on it)
The most perfect voices in harmony! I imagine a heavenly concert of Keith Green and 2nd Chapter of Acts, yay!
I would like to see their instrumental albums listed as well.

My roommate in Yosemite Valley turned me onto this group. I didn't even know Christian music existed outside of a Sunday morning church service! One of my most precious memories was worshiping with a small group of Believers on Easter morning in the little Chapel across the meadow from Upper/Lower Yosemite Falls and singing the Easter Song along with 2COA cassette. My favorite 2COA song is Buck's vocal on Lift Me UP. Yes, Pandora there is so much more to this group!
rellacapraro
U can buy Narnia on Amazon, I just did. They have everything else as well. I'm @ work and can't use my mp3 so was trying to find them, also. this is disappointin g .
habitatinspe c t i o n s
I agree with ya'll. Met them in 1972. Wow!
Is this the best Pandora can do for this group? Do you need my help with the Genre of 70s Jesus Music?
sgarrett803
I need a fix of the 2nd chapter of acts. If not from Pandora, from where?
rklievers
Can we get the 2COA on Pandora?
ditto, ditto, ditto. their music is wonderful!
ricardo_c_da v i s
Ditto ... more 2COA please!
e19581
favorite song by this artist is "mansion builder'
gnhj1
more second chapter of acts, there is a demand for it!
I agree, there needs to be much more Acts played on this station. They produced several records and other songs besides Easter Song, but even Christian radio stations do not seem to play anything else by them. I saw Anne and Matthew a few years ago in concert. Really missed Nelly.
more 2nd Chapter of Acts please
pdfwc
Keith Green and 2nd chapter of acts did concerts together. would be nice to hear 2nd chapter on my 2nd chapter station...
agaiser9
Great song. Great group. I'd love to hear more 2nd Chapter of Acts, as well as other pioneers of Christian Rock!
rsugg7
Yeah! The Easter Song by 2nd Chapter of Acts. Thanks for adding.
isaacdduke
Amen, to all the above. This is the best group lyrically and musically of all time. Better than any other band, 'secular' or 'sacred'. I agree that they aren't your typical Christian copy of some more famous group. I have never heard anyone close to them, except perhaps some of their songs sound similar to Queen.
elizzabeast
Please add 2nd Chapter of Acts - they're my favorite Christian group of all time!
I'm looking for a web program that features the 2nd chapter of acts. I thought I might find them on Pandora. I'll keep looking.
karenleelamb
This is a landmark Christian band! They set a benchmark forerunner - praise God for them! Please add their songs to Pandora!
stefon742
Add 2nd chapter of acts Thanks
cindic2000
Please add Matthew Ward, Kelly Williard, Fernando Ortega.
Thanx....ver y much.
coolsailing
Please please please add 2nd Chapter of Acts songs. Their songs are still amazing! Matthew Ward and Anne Herring songs would be greatly appreciated also!
The 2nd Chapter of Acts provided the soundtrack for the "Jesus Freak" phase of my life in the mid to late 70's. My church group sang their "Easter Song": every Easter.
Yes, I cast my vote to have some 2nd Chapter of Acts songs. They have long been my favorite group. I miss them. I'll take solo songs from Annie Herring or Matthew Ward as well.

I would really appreciate it if 2nd Chapter of Acts were feartured on this site. Being family members, their vocal harmonies are awesome. They performed an amazing, little-known , interpretive , musical rendition of "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" that ought to be known.
2nd Chapter of Acts was a "seminal" vocal group that profited by their early association with folk rock and effected the course of Gospel Rock. They never copied others styles, instead creating their own unique and unmistakable sound which has since been adopted by many others, both secular and sacred. Their music deserves to be heard and appreciated here and anywhere good music is sought.

This artist has well over a dozen albums & hundreds of songs. Where are they all ?
I Love 2nd Chapter of Acts "Rejoice" album..It got me through some real tough times...Wish I could find another one somewhere
Yes, we need SCOA. All I have is a beat up casette...so m e w h e r e .
Matthew Annie and Nellie were the forerunner of Contemporary Christina Music in the early 1970's
sgtbarrett
WHERE IS THE 2ND CHAPTER OF ACTS STUFF!!!!! WE NEED MORE SCOA!
