New Catholic Album by Jonathan Murphy

Hello everyone and God bless.

I have released a new album of contemplative, worshipful Catholic hymns.  If you are a Catholic and you love the beautiful hymns sung during Mass, please check out the album!  It is titled, "Hosea" by Jonathan Murphy.  The album is available on amazon, itunes and cdbaby.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  As you know, Catholic music is not exactly the most prevalent among all the Christian music out there today and is not generally embraced by the Protestant community.  I want to get the word out to make this Catholic music available to all the faithful who seek music that promotes Catholic beliefs, theology, spirituality, and prayer life.  I pray that it will be a blessing to you and to all who are seeking something such as this to help enrich their walk in faith.

A wonderful album!

I purchased your album at CDBaby and have been enjoying it. I really like Hosea, Cry of the Poor and Blest Are They. Tell me about Ave Maria. Is it your own composition? Are there words for it?

You have excellent production values. I am jealous that you play piano so well. And your voice has a pleasing timbre and fluidity with perfect pitch. I only play guitar – and not very well. My resonant voice is hard to control. 

I am so glad you signed on at and posted your album in a blog article. This site had almost shut down last January but I was given the opportunity to take over ownership and administration of the site and I happily accepted. I have endeavored to revive the site by posting articles frequently. The site is built with Drupal CMS and it was a hands-on way to learn this content management system. I want to keep improving the site, making it interactive and fulfilling people's desires to hear, promote and produce good Catholic music.
