Comments:  Where ORISONS reworked the narrative portions of the PRAYERS
album, this disc resurrects its songs.  Tracks 3, 4, 6, and 8 originally
appeared on PRAYERS; guitar and choir were added for this release.  Track 1
first appeared on SOFTSWORD, only to have guitars and keyboards added for
its appearance on PRAYERS; the guitars were replaced and choir added for
this third incarnation.  Tracks 2, 5, and 7 are new to this release.  (****)
