New Music: Bread of Life from St. James Music Press

Just published in time for the Sundays with all those readings about bread, we bring you, “Bread of Life” by Lee Barrow! It incorporates the tune “Sherwin” as well as “Let Us Break Bread Together” and can be put together in one rehearsal! (Whew!)

And if you need more ideas for those high-carb Sundays, we've made some other musical suggestions that can be sung with a limited number of singers and rehearsals. 

Other Featured Music

A lovely score by William Boyce, this is a delightful two part (equal) for choir and organ that's perfect for communion. - View

Cheers!

Just Some Lyrics

Falling through the church doors is how it started

Like it was calling me to not go in half hearted...

Before long my wife took me to mass

Which is why I wanna make songs inspired from the book to wax...

Praise to the New Eve

"Praise to the New Eve" is part of a parody art project that reimagines Maoist-era Chinese Communist Party propaganda songs as Catholic anthems. The original, "Learn from Lei Feng's Good Example", encourages Chinese to look to the peasant Lei Feng as a good Communist role model while "Praise to the New Eve" encourages Catholics to honor Mary as she honors Christ.

A Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

When the Bishop of Bridgetown was appointed Archbishop of Port of Spain there was a desire to give him a gift of prayer.  That desire inspired this prayer and song...Most Holy Trinity.  That was back in 2017...it has taken us this long to be able to record and release the prayer publicly.  We hope that it will be part of your prayer on Trinity Sunday. 

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity
Father, into Your hands, I commend my spirit, I surrender my heart,
I relinquish my will
And Father, I abandon myself, I come, to be sculpted,
let Your will be done in me
Father, I entrust you with my doubts, I cast all my cares,
You are my refuge and strength

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Praise, glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Jesus, Your body fills my hungry soul, Your blood quenches my inner thirst
You’ve lived to die for all my sins
Jesus, have mercy on my transgressions, accept my tears of repentance
Renew my strength to bear my cross
And Jesus, Lamb of God, You are my Shepherd, with You no evil do I fear
Blest be the power of Your name

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Praise and glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Holy Spirit, I invite your presence here, I welcome all your gifts
I pledge to use them all in service
Holy Spirit, bring me wisdom and enlight’nment, anoint my lips to speak Your word
Open my eyes to seek Your truth
And Holy Spirit, dwell in me, Kindle Your flame in my heart, fill me with love and compassion
Breathe new life in me

Amen

Prayer and music composed and recorded by Color Music Ministry 

Breathe on me- An upbeat prayer to the Holy Spirit

Color Music Ministry released  2 new songs for celebrating the recent feast of Pentecost..., the first is Prayer to the Holy Spirit...this is the second, in contrast to the first one which is meant for quiet and meditative worship, this one is meant for praise and worship, and some dancing with the Holy Spirit.

Breathe on me Holy Spirit is also available on our Contemplative Worship Podcast and via SoundCloud
