Description: Most of us involved with church music know Richard Proulx as one of the true leaders in our field, the composer of more than 300 works for organ, chorus, solo voice, orchestra...even two operas. This recording was created to help Richard through a difficult time.

The story... In September of 1996, Richard Proulx experienced major heart problems that required quadruple bypass surgery. Complications following surgery resulted in a grueling four-month-long stay in the hospital. Thankfully, Richard was slowly getting back to work, looking relaxed and healthier, facing the future confidently but with some concerns. Richard faced a considerable hospital and medical bill--about $350,000--because he had been uninsured since leaving Holy Name Cathedral and did not yet qualify for Medicare.

This is the part of the story where his friends come in. A few fellow musicians organized the New Life Foundation: Friends of Richard Proulx to raise the funds necessary to significantly reduce or eliminate Richard's debt. This recording was part of that effort.

The Recording... Recorded with the help of The Cathedral Singers and other friends who voluntarily gave of their time and incredible talent, all proceeds GIA collects will directly benefit the New Life Foundation.

Spirit of God Unleashed is a magnificent recording featuring a cross-section of Richard's work over the past several decades. Included is a set of extensive liner notes in which Richard discusses the origins of every song.

This is a major retrospective recording, featuring music from a variety of publishers, created for a very good cause.
