Paul and Christopher W. French
Paul began playing
percussion at 8 years old.
Standing on wooden boxes
and crates to reach his
conga's and drums, Paul
studied hard and used his
talents for the Lord. He
performed in countless
worship services and
programs throughout his 8
years of learning experience
under the guidance and
direction of Robby Robinson,
keyboard player and band
director for Frankie Valli and
the Four Seasons.

So the same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people
and their officers, saying, "You shall no longer give the people straw
to make brick as before. Let them go and gather straw for
themselves. And you shall lay on them the quota of bricks which
they made before. You shall not reduce it. For they are idle;
therefore they cry out, saying, 'Let us go and sacrifice to our God.'
Let more work be laid on the men, that they may labor in it, and let
them not regard false words."
"Pharaoh and the Taskmasters"
This song’s theme was created from the book of Exodus, chapter 5. The following paragraph is a short excerpt;
Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Let my people go, so that
they may hold a festival to me in the desert.’" Pharaoh said, "Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel
go? I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go." That same day Pharaoh gave orders to the slave drivers and
the foremen in charge of the people: "You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go
and gather their own straw. But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don't reduce the quota.
Written and composed in the sad key of A Minor, Pharaoh and the Taskmasters, sets forth a tone of sorrow and pain
with violin and background voices, portraying the cries of the people of Israel in slavery. The song bears tension and
sadness throughout, as we imagine Israel slaving away in Egypt under Pharaoh and his taskmasters, waiting for
deliverance from the LORD!
