Child of Eternal Love (Gmaj) by Richard Schletty

Other

4:12 minutes (9.61 MB).

This song still needs some work. This rendition is in G. I have also recorded it in F which is better for my baritone vocal range. If you would like the sheet music for this, write to me. I'd love to have someone perform it. 

Child of Eternal Love

[verse 1]
God, in glory, brings a star so bright.
A Son is born in a bed of barley hay.
Behold the Savior, our New Light,
Child of Eternal Love, Shepherd of the way.

God's love through music

I knew from the very beginning when I prayed for the gift...asking God to be able to play for Him..that when it actually happened that He is the one who gives the music.

It's a prayer. It's a gift. It's a way to...  Read Full Story >>>

What is "Catholic music?"

People have different ideas about what "Catholic music" is. This is a working list compiled by my friend Nick Alexander, a co-member of Catholic Music Ministries and Top Catholic Songs. Are there any categories that we’ve missed?  Please share your comments below.  

Catholic Music categories

1) Traditional Gregorian chant.

2) Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque sacred music.

3) Hymnody: liturgical music for congregational singing, usually following a form of stanza-stanza-stanza or stanza-chorus-stanza-chorus-stanza-chorus.

4) Contemporary Liturgical (Stage 1): Liturgical music for congregation singing, post Vatican II up to around 1990. A heavy Folk/Broadway influence, as defined by the St. Louis Jesuits, North American Liturgy Resources (NALR),  Schutte, Haugen, Haas, Joncas, Foley, Farrell, Dufford, O’Connor and others.  This seems to be the predominant form today.

5) Contemporary Liturgical (stage 2): Liturgical music for congregational singing, post 1990s, after the first style has taken root, and are not as dated-sounding as...  Read Full Story >>>

Wondrous Clay by Richard Schletty, Andre van Haren, Paul F. Page

2:33 minutes (5.84 MB).

Wondrous Clay

Lord of life, you love all souls.
By your touch we are made whole.
Sculptor of all time and space,
hold us in your warm embrace.

[refrain]
God, you watch creation toil.
God, you seed and water soil.
Guide us through another day.
Shape our lives in wondrous clay.

Often blind and so afraid.
Then your Word makes worries fade.
Healing Spirit, bring new light.
Illuminate our darkest night.

[refrain]

We journey with your risen Son
from mother's womb to valleys beyond.
Lead us to a vision so true,
through living waters that renew.

[refrain]

The Lord Is Risen! Happy Easter from John Michael Talbot

[A mailing list message from John Michael Talbot Ministries]

The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!

I extend a very special Easter blessing for this year of 2015. Our journey through Lent, Holy Week, and the Triduum, culminating in the joy of Easter, has had special significance this year. We have done MUCH hard work, and suffered some set backs, only to be followed by significant steps forward. The hard work is exhausting. The setbacks are always disappointing and discouraging. But the steps forward are always MOST encouraging! Lent, Holy Week, and Easter seem to be symbolic of our entire life in Christ.

The secular world today is deeply troubled. How desperately we need the...

You take to the road in your dream machine
You don't obey the signs, you don't look both ways
You are a traveler out of phase
