Glory! and The Blood of the Lamb are the fifth and sixth in the series of ten musicals that John Gowans and John Larsson wrote in the period 1967-1990. In these two musicals we explore the riches to be found in the history of The Salvation Army.

Glory! is based on Edward Joy's classic book The Old Corps in which he writes about the Army's early days in Folkestone. The stories he tells about personalities he had known in his youth have become part of Salvation Army folklore. In the book a separate chapter is devoted to each of these characters, but in the musical we weave these stories together so that the personalities interact with each other before their individual stories resolve as the musical climaxes. In the way that Glory! blends drama and music together, it is probably the best crafted of our musicals.Glory! and The Blood of the Lamb are the fifth and sixth in the series of ten musicals that John Gowans and John Larsson wrote in the period 1967-1990. In these two musicals we explore the riches to be found in the history of The Salvation Army.
