Susan Osborn was the first vocalist the Consort ever had. They heard her in Vermillion, South Dakota, during a concert tour in 1975. They felt such a kinship with Susan and her singing that they invited her to the “village” of musicians that Paul Winter gathered at his farm in Connecticut in the summer of 1977, out of which came the Consort's album Common Ground. Soon thereafter, Susan joined the band.

Their first Winter Solstice Celebration in New York was set for December 19, 1980. Eleven days earlier, John Lennon had been murdered, not far from the Cathedral. The Consort wanted to play something as an elegy for John, but they had never played a Beatles’ song before. However, Jim Scott, Consort guitarist, knew “In My Life,” and Susan learned the words. The Consort ran through it together once, just before the concert.
