From one of GIA’s most accomplished composers comes a compelling collection of new music suitable for use throughout the liturgical year. Filled with expressive texts and exquisite melodies, Tony Alonso’s A House of Prayer shows a depth of wisdom and a maturity of craftsmanship that represents some of his finest work to date.


Tony’s impassioned setting, “Be My Hands and Feet” evokes the heartbreaking imagery of Christ’s sacrifice while the stunning Mary Louise Bringle text calls us to be his hands and feet here on earth.  “A Joyful Christmas Gloria” is exactly that! This contemporary rendering is a wonderful blending of the tune from “Angels We Have Heard on High” with the “Gloria” text from the 2010 Revised Order of Mass and features an uplifting piano arrangement by Jeanne Cotter.  “From the Many Make Us One”—a collaboration with Gabe Huck—is sure to be an instant communion classic that you will come back to again and again.


Each song provides exactly what good liturgical music should: they reach in, open the mind, touch the heart, and imprint on the soul. This music speaks to the needs of the church and will truly inspire the sung prayer your
assembly.
