In Bring Us Home, Paul Tate nimbly weaves songs of hope, joy, and promise with songs of soulful supplication.
Tate’s wistful “Magnificat” blissfully ascends heavenward while the quiet yet powerful pleading of “If You Love Me” implores, "Love one another as I have loved you.”
The jewel of this recording is most assuredly “Anima Christi.” At its beginning, this haunting a cappella piece mirrors the stark open harmonies of ancient monastic hymnody but soon reveals the salvific power of God’s love and mercy.
This expertly composed liturgical music is suitable for reflective listening or prayerful participation. From beginning to end, Bring Us Home flawlessly illustrates our transcendence from the shadow of darkness into holy, redeeming light.
Includes one each of the following octavos:
Be Glad and Rejoice! - Remember You Are Dust - You Are Strong, You Are Holy - Open Our Eyes, O Lord, We Pray - Anima Christi - Rest Now in Me - Magnificat - Return to the Lord - Bring Us Home - With the Lord There Is Mercy - Misericordia, Señor / Be Merciful, O Lord - If You Love Me - Let Us Worship the Lord - Be with Me, Lord
