If I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know
And never be the same?
Will you let my... Read Full Story >>>
The Lamb of God from Mass of Joy and Peace by Tony Alonso. Sung at the Church of St. Matthew on May 3, 2015. Sr. Anne at piano.
A difficult song for me to sing as I am a baritone-bass and it was quite early on a Sunday morning. Yet, I offer this as a guide for you to learn the song. When I play it with guitar, I transpose it down one or two steps. This was recorded with a Zoom H2 digital recorder on May 3, 2015, at the Church of Saint Matthew in St. Paul, MN. Sr. Anne Becker at piano. Please pray for the strength and endurance of this parish.
We Have Been Told
We have been told.
We've seen his face
and heard his voice alive in our hearts.
Live in my love with all your heart.
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.

I received this email blast today from GIA. GIA just released the Hymnals app for Android. The iPad app had been previously available. Not available for iPhone. The per-hymnal cost is much more for keyboard and guitar editions than for pew editions. You only get 3 songs free when you download the "free" app. Nice idea but can be quite expensive if your church works from 2 or more hymnals. The digital editions should be half the cost of the print editions, in my opinion. I am sad that GIA does not have RitualSong available –that is our primary hymnal at the Church of Saint Mary in Saint Paul, MN. – RS

When we are living, we are in Christ Jesus.
And when we die, we remain in Him.
Both in our living and in our dying
We are the Lord's. We belong to Him.
Pues si vivimos para Él vivimos
Y si morimos para Él morimos.
Sea que vivamos o que muramos,
Somos del Señor, somos del Señor.

The Master Musician: A musical journey and parable depicting God as the Master Musician and we as his instruments. As God the Master Musician crafts us into fine musical instruments, we can "join in the symphony orchestra of the church and make a beautiful music bigger than any one musician for all the people of the world." This album includes 11 beautifully orchestrated and inspiring songs: The Master Musician, The Tree, The Craftsman, Classical Order, Impressions, Words and Music, One Note, The Symphoney, The Conductor, The Blessed Musician and The Final Ascent.
Good News....and MORE Good News!
We are moving forward! This album is going to be awesome!
Well, I don't really know exactly where to begin. It has been a bit of a whirlwind since my last update. I must confess that this journey has surprised me and challenged me in many ways. And I certainly was not expecting what I'm about to share with you.
Without going into a lot of details, my promotional efforts brought me to the attention of Nick Coetzee of Rain Music. Working with Nick, I now have the opportunity to take this album project to Watershed Recording Studio in Nashville, TN. I'll say it again because even I have a hard time believing it. I now have the opportunity to record this project in Nashville, TN! I certainly did not think two months ago that this... Read more here.

"I am a Organist at my Catholic Church, and I wish to be introduced to some new music. I would use it especially in the Youth Choir. Topcatholicsongs.com would help me to make both the choir and congregation more holy and involved in music."
Let's introduce Maggie to some new music! C'mon, everyone – let's get the chatter going here. Collaborate and contribute your talents! Raise your voices and sing alleluia!
I'll get the ball rolling for Maggie by suggesting that she take a look at the many organ/choral pieces written by Paul F. Page. Paul offers his sheet music free at his web site, www.paulpage.org, specifically here: Read Full Story >>>
