As I was browsing Cass' timeline on this site, it noted that while still a member of the Trimvirate in 1962, she also sang in a womens folk Gospel trio called the "Ofays Of Faith". Please tell me if there are any recordings of this. The way Her voice impacted the song, Glory Glory gospel song with the Big Three Always made me want to hear more of Her in this area. No matter which genre she chose to sing in, the impact was there! Any help would be most appreciated.

As with The Triumvirate, there are no known recordings of The Ofays of Faith. The latter was a very briefly cobbled together group involving Ginny Clemons and Gusti Hervey in Chicago--along the lines of assembling on Hootenanny Nights and singing (the folk version of a jam session)...
