Soul of Christ

Simple, beautiful, dignified, singable. That’s the music of the Dominican Friars of Poland, now available in English. A rotating cast of non-professional singers from across the country came together over an extended weekend to record two albums’ worth of liturgical music.

Most of the pieces were unfamiliar to most of the singers, and yet the beauty of the music, coupled with the spiritual depths of the texts, provided the singers with ongoing inspiration throughout this challenging experience. The performances here, recorded by volunteer singers after a brief period of rehearsing, are meant to inspire and encourage others to use these very same pieces at their own liturgies. They can be learned and sung well in a short amount of time, by dedicated choirs of modest means.

The two albums’ worth of material form a basic corpus of music for the whole church year. Today we are excited to share with you the first album, Soul of Christ, with choral music for Lent, Easter, and Ordinary Time. The second album, featuring music for Advent, Marian feast days, and Ordinary Time will be released in the fall of 2020.
