Hello, everyone. Here are a few songs from my new album, I hope you will enjoy them!

Friends: I am happy to report that I have just released my second album or original music (on January 15, 2022). It’s called #5 and consists of three instrumental pieces that I composed, spanning nine movements. I share two movements below for your listening pleasure; please feel free to check out the entire album on my YouTube channel. As with my first album issued in 2021, the intent of these songs is to uplift, to encourage, to express wonder, gratitude and love, and to glorify. Thank you for listening! Andrzej

Praise to the New Eve [Guadalupe Mix Double Bonus]


If you don't know Lee O'Day, he's the program director for "The Sword of Saint George" or KSWZ, a Catholic radio station near the college town Manhattan, Kansas. As he'd had us (the Catholic parody band Captain Hogcurl's Dacha Porch) featured on his "Saturday Night Sword Play" contemporary Catholic music show before, we sent him this track, a remix of Praise to the New Eve. He enjoyed it and actually added a little connective tissue to the music to make it play twice as long for the radio program. This was such a thrill and a huge compliment. As I wanted to offer it here as a download, he graciously gave the OK to send out his version. The video you're seeing here is the lyric video for Praise to the New Eve [Guadalupe Mix] and the free download you're seeing are Praise to the New Eve [Guadalupe Mix Double Bonus] (*this is Lee O'Day's version). Stay blessed! Read Full Story >>>

Here's why TopCatholicSongs.com was offline on Thursday 1/6/22

Some of you may have noticed that this Top Catholic Songs website was offline or erratic for a few hours on Thursday 1/6/22.  I was attempting to switch hosting to my home-based Synology Disk Station DS1513+ (an NAS – network attached storage unit). It did not go well. The Intel Atom Dual Core 2.13 GHz processor with only 4 GB of RAM cannot handle the demands of this Drupal 6 CMS (content management system).

So I switched back to SiteGround, a hosting company that has made the decision to soon end PHP version 5.6 service. They say that PHP 5.6 it is too old and they don't want to spend money on security maintenance. I am looking for a new hosting company that is willing to host older technologies. 

The problem is that when I switch this Drupal 6 website to PHP 7.x or 8.x, our self-hosted audio players disappear...  Read Full Story >>>

Stars, How Do You Feel About Being Small? Lyric video.



The creation narrative speaks of God making a lesser light to rule the night and a greater light to rule the day.  Then, as if almost an afterthought, the author of Genesis adds, "He also made the stars." 

We may not know all of God's purposes of the stars (are there other creatures out there?) but we do know we were created and are loved by our God.  It's humbling to think of the many, many stars there that bring beauty to us.
