Description:

Commissioned through grants from four Marianist provinces, the music on this special recording reaches out to the over 40,000 small Christian communities in the United States.

Music for Small Christian Communities is a collection of 28 songs (with some selections in both English and Spanish) written by eight of today's best liturgical composers. Some of the music is responsive to typical events in a community's life, such as adding new members, public commitment to a community's mission, and gathering at table together. Other songs are written for regular ritual moments including Call to Prayer and Worship, Liturgy of the Word, Prayers of the Faithful, and Mission (Sending). There are also several selections dedicated to Mary, Mother of the Church and a community's commitment to social justice.

This unique project was conceived by Bernard Lee, SM, and David Kauffman, a lay Marianist, both committed to their Marianist charism of "Community and Hospitality."
