Reformation CD Write up
Chantal Pelser is on vocals and piano and Aje is vocals and drums. Tom Paxton creates amazing textures the guitars and Jean-Pierre Joubert plays the bass like only he can, laying down the rhythm section as he has done with Aje for over a decade, at Harvester Reformational Church Cape Town and in the Harvester Blues Band. The project was produced by Brice, a French producer at Mama Dance Studios in Longkloof, Cape Town.
Chantal had the time to explore more nuances of her voice on this album, because it was more a studio production and she could really develop the ideas versus the live worship situations on most of her other projects.
“Reformation” was released in 2007 by Pelser Media and is the debut album by Aje and Chantal Pelser. The title track contains a quote from Apostle Andre Pelser explaining the move of God he helped to start with Prophet Nola Pelser: “reform the Church to reform the land.”
To reform means to set in order in the same way that a bone that is out of joint is reset by chiropractor!
The entire album deals with deal concepts that will reset mind sets and challenge traditions of men. “Christ within the Hope of Glory” deals with the inner realities that each Christian should value more than outward results.
“Awesome God” and “Let Your Wind Blow” consider the depths of worship and allowing God’s Spirit to cover every part of your life.
Aje’s Metal track “Arrayed in Splendour” belts out screams and heavy guitars with double kick patterns on the drums.
A great variety of genres are released on one album to showcase the diverse interests of the band, but also to reach different audiences. The Band completed a tour in Gauteng and made good friends along the way, many of whom still work together in the Harvester network. Tom married Eileen and they are in ministry in Natal, South Africa, having started their own church. Jean-Pierre and Christ and the kids moved to Canada again. Aje and Chantal went on to explore the further genres of music in what they call: “All Nations School of Worship.”
