Liam Lawton’s High Is the Heaven combines Celtic themes, strong melodies, and poignant texts to create a unique and accessible collection of music for liturgical celebrations and beyond. Like so many of Liam’s songs, each exquisite piece has a back story: The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor was written for the Papal Mass of Pope Francis in Ireland; High Is the Heaven commemorates the 1400th anniversary of the death of St. Columban, one of the ancient Celtic monks who brought Christianity from Ireland to Europe; and the Christmas piece There’s a Star was written for Liam’s own parish choir in Ireland. In true Lawton fashion, he injects the beauty and spirituality of his homeland into every song of this collection.
