These are wonderful suggestions, everyone! Thank you. Yes, I will sing it at our church when we also sing Word Three from "The Seven Last Words of Christ". Very powerful, but I wanted my piece to be much simpler. I need the sheet music, if at all possible. Sorry I didn't give more details. Perhaps something could be spliced with the original hymn (English translation)? I don't know. I love the idea of showing both aspects of Stabat Mater. Thank you for the ideas. I really appreciate the time...
Hello, Dan! Great to hear from you. That is truly amazing about your church in the United Arab Emirates being one of the largest Catholic parishes in the world. You are one of the first contributors to the new TCS forum which I set up last week. Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated. In fact, I had thought about song uploads. I will look for a Drupal CMS module which not only uploads MP3 files but allows the artist to create a profile page for managing their music and...

This comment has been promoted to a Forum Topic here. Hello Richard, this is Dan of SpiritN3D, living and working in Dubai, UAE. Although the UAE is in the Middle East and is 98% Muslim, would you believe one of the largest Catholic parishes in the world is located here?? That's right...Saint Mary's.

I've approached songs different ways, sometimes starting with a poem scratched on paper, sometimes starting with an instrumental track someone gave me. I have co-written, too, helping someone improve their lyrics or add verses. Sometimes the words rhyme. The stanzas normally rhyme, but you can do free verse, too. Important thing is the meter and flow. Do the words flow easily from your lips to the ear of the listener? Are you stressing the syllables correctly? That's especially important in...
Traditional Lenten hymns – which ones are your favorites?

Lyrics for "Take Up Our Cross" by Sarah Hart, Curtis Stephan, Curtis Stephan, Sarah Hart, Marc Byrd http://www.spiritandsong.com/compositions/81117 1. Behold the wood that bears our name; behold the nails that hold our sin. The tree from which salvation blooms; the death by which we're born again. Refrain We take up our cross and follow him; we lay down our lives that we might live. We carry the hope of Christ within; we take up our cross and follow him. 2. We embrace the sacrifice, and walk...
Good point, Nick. There are sheet music services that offer music scores in several different key transpositions. I think Valerie wants a more contemporary setting that is in English. It needs to reflect the sorrow of Mother Mary at the foot of the cross. I believe she wants to be able to sing it at a church service. I found a beautiful song called "The Most of All" written by Sophie Riccio Kozak, sung by Katy Feeney. It can be used for Christmas or Stations of the Cross. https://www.youtube....

Hi Valerie, I'm confused. Do you need a recording, or do you need music notation? And could the Stabat Mater have it's key lowered to accommodate you?
Hi, Valerie. I have asked our topcatholicsongs group if they have any suggestions. I hope we can come up with some suggestions!

Hi there. I am looking for a non-classical, non-Latin version of Stabat Mater or another song that reflects Mary's sorrow at the Cross. Basically, I don't want to do any of the traditional ones because they're a bit out of my range. Does anyone know of such a song? I have found a couple, but nothing I am particularly attached to. I need it in the next few weeks, if possible. Thank you.

Re: "Gently, she carries her babe in her arms..." I wish I could find that song, too. It sounds very nice. Let us know if you track it down.

PLEASE HELP! There is a song I am looking for and it goes "Gently, she carries, her babe in her arms Holding, pure light and love .... She was told, she would be ......" That's all I can remember but its about how Mary held Jesus after he was taken off the cross." It's really incredible and it would mean the world if I could find it.

Since we are listing Catholic songs, the list should include music that could actually be used at Mass. Two extremely obvious choices are David Haas' "We Choose Life" and "Before I Was Born." Both songs are scriptural, well-written and they are available through GIA Publications in Chicago. I have used them for every Respect Life liturgy for the past decade.
