about

The Unseen Composer is an album of 19 of my dad's songs, Ed Parrino Sr. Back in the 70's he wrote a ton of songs which eventually were performed with the choirs that he directed, the first being at Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Westwego, La. That choir was called the Bread of Life Choir and later on with the second one, The Marrero Assembly of God Choir in Marrero, La. That choir actually recorded an album in the late 70s.These versions here are pretty much close to his original arrangements with my own little twist. There are no drums, only guitar, bass and sometimes Fender Rhodes electric piano. I recorded it in the summer of 2004 and released it on December 4 of that year at a show at a local coffee house as a Christmas present for mt dad with many of the people who were associated with the past choirs in attendance. It was a very special night and a very special album for a very special gifted man, my father Ed Parrino Sr. or as I call him, Dee. This album was so much fun to record and I am thankful for those of you who took the time to listen to my interpretations of my dad's beautiful music. At times I was moved to tears listening to all these songs again and typing all the lyrics and stories behind the songs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Track Name: He Could Have Down From The Cross
He could have come down from the cross
But for my sake and yours He endured
Though the nails pierced His hands
And the spikes pierced His feet
And the crown pierced His skull he refused
To come down from the cross just for us

He could have come down from the cross
But for my sins and yours He withstood
Though the blood that He shed
From His feet to His head
Was so heavy it weighted Him down
He refused to come down just for us

When I think of the way
That they mocked Him that day
If ye be God get ye down from the cross
For all our sin He endured til the end
And conquered evil and death for all men

He could have come down from the cross
But for my sake and yours He endured
Though the nails pierced His hands
And the spikes pierced His feet
And the crown pierced His skull
He refused to come down from the cross just for us

When I think of the way
That they mocked Him that day
If ye be God get ye down from the cross
For all our sin He endured til the end
And conquered evil and sin by rising again

He could have come down from the cross
But for my sins and yours He withstood
Though the blood that He shed
From His feet to His head
Was so heavy it weighted Him down
He refused to come down just for us
Track Name: And Jesus I Miss You
See the tree that He died on
Two thousand years fore I was born
And all for me
It hurts so bad down deep inside
To think of how my savior died
Upon a tree

They placed the crown upon His head
Pierced His side and still He said
I love them so
And I can hear the lonely cry He uttered
When He screamed
Where did my father go?

And Jesus I miss You
And I'm being good
I'd love to be with You
If only I could

They buried Him that fateful day
And rolled the stone to block the way
But praise His name
Three days from then He rose again
And left that tomb they placed Him in
Salvation gained

And Jesus I miss You
And I'm being good
I'd love to be with You
If only I could
I'd love to be with You
If only I could
