A complete music resource for the celebration of the rites of Christian Initiation for English-speaking, Spanish-speaking, and bilingual parish communities! All of the music within is time-tested and sure to bring life to the various rites at the heart of the initiation process. Most pieces are ritual in nature: short, acclamatory pieces designed to support parish celebrations of the rites of initiation. Jerry Galipeau, noted author and lecturer on Christian initiation, is the compiler and editor of this fine resource. Introductions include pastoral and performance notes in English and Spanish. Keyboard arrangements and guitar chord symbols are provided for each piece. Composers represented in this collection include: Sterling Picard, James Marchionda, Lucien Deiss, Lorenzo Florian, Jerry Galipeau, Alan Hommerding, Peter Kolar, Peter Rubalcava, Carl Johengen, Howard Hughes, Laura Dankler, Lisa Stafford, John Olivier, Paul Page, Steve Warner, Kevin Keil, Joe Mattingly, and Michael Ward. This CD set is the companion recording to the bilingual (English/Spanish) Chosen in Christ/Elegidos en Cristo music collection.
