I am pleased to announce the official release of “Mater Dei,” a collection of beloved Marian hymns and original songs in honor of Our Lady.
Favorites include “Hail, Holy Queen,” “Immaculate Mary” and Shubert’s “Ave Maria.” pitched in a lower key so you can sing along.
You can listen to all the songs here:
October is recognized as the month of the Holy Rosary, Our Lady’s prayer — “Mater Dei” is a wonderful way to prepare to pray the rosary from the heart.
I have included several original songs, some based upon the writings of Don Stefano Gobbi of the Marian Movement of Priests from his book, To the Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons. In these writings, Mary is speaking directly to Father Gobbit — I have incorporated that “first person” into the lyrics of my songs, capturing the beautiful intimacy of her words to her beloved priest.
Here is an example from the first song on the above player, “Under My Immaculate Mantle:”
(based on reading #194 from To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, compiled by Don Stefano Gobbi)
Under my Immaculate Mantle / Come together as children
Be as one
Under my Immaculate Mantle / Come together, oh children
Be as one
Let me pour my balm upon you
Let me heal your deepest wounds
Let me touch you, let me love you
Into the heart of Christ Jesus …
