I just released a lyric video for an acoustic song called "What Does It Profit a Man." Truth be told, the chorus was written after the scandal of Theodore McCarrick was unveiled. The harmonica player, Trent Williamson, has recorded for Elton John and other big names - it's worth the listen just to hear him play the harp!

1st Verse:

Falling through the church doors is how it started

Like it was calling me to not go in half hearted...

Before long my wife took me to mass

Which is why I wanna make songs inspired from the book to wax...

Reflecting but being present too

Not dissecting the blessings just letting them be true...

I need to keep my heart open every time the bible is

And take a leap of faith with this art hoping it is a reliable gift...

But it's all for Gods glory and I'm still learning

Our lives are unique story's with hills but we keep the candles burning

And handle life by staying determined...

But I'm not a priest or a saint

Learning to stay on both feet when life makes me faint

Starts with when...

"The Beauty of Creation" - Catechesis through song.

Catechesis through teaching.

I was inspired by Fr. Maximilian to upload a song collaboration I did in 2006 with David Goméz Sanz (Segovia, Spain). 

The Beauty of All Things

Behold the beauty of all things,
the rocks, the plants and all beings;
a world conceived by a Maker
whose gift to you is the knowing.

Stop, now, and take a listen.
Look 'round and breathe it in.
Reach out and touch the Spirit.
Behold. Behold.

Behold the beauty of all things
whose names are carefully...

Since 1992 St. James Music Press has been publishing some of the finest church anthems being written today. THE FINEST! And we're not just bragging. Anthems from SJMP have been heard on national broadcasts, performed at cathedrals and churches throughout the world, and premiered at major music conferences throughout the country. Our catalog does not contain praise-songs, choruses or renewal music. It is, however, filled with new traditional anthems, beautiful classics, and fresh arrangements of varying difficulty which have been tried and tested by many fine church choirs.

I just released a 5 Track Ep and two new Singles on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube. Please find above the link to the songs on YouTube. I collaborated with my dad on these (he did the instrumentals). We chose these 7 out of 15 that I recorded vocals for. I originally planned an album but we settled for an EP and a couple of singles. Happy Easter everyone and I hope you enjoy them. God Bless. Alex.

Official Music Video for the title track of "You Walk on Water"
https://www.youtube.com/embed/UQHLN2ZScdY 

This song is based on the scene of St. Peter walking on water, but was inspired specifically by a dialogue between Jesus and one of my spiritual daughters before she died. "Lord, when will I have the faith to walk on water?" she asked. And He replied, "Kate, what do you think you are doing now?"

Recently the Holy Spirit has led me to record Catholic songs with a vintage vibe (viz. before everything became hyper-electronic and hyper-produced, meaning real musicians on real instruments). If you enjoy vintage music but want a Christian message you might enjoy my music. Grand central station for my music is www.FatherMaxMusic.com (you'll find links there to YouTube, Spotify, etc.).

The EP (which I call #4) is a suite of six original songs which I have just released. They are mostly instrumental, the sixth song includes text adapted from Book of Psalms: "Resound, proclaim; Sing a new song. Glorify!" I hope listeners will be encouraged and uplifted by this music. Thank you so much for listening! Thank you also for this opportunity!

I have many songs in my mind from my years in a Singapore Convent school (CHIJ, Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus) and I would like to revisit them and see more of their lyrics.

This one lovely verse is all that I can remember of a hymn from my youth in Singapore around 1968-1970:

The morning, the morning is coming at last,
The midnight has vanished, the darkness has passed,
So lift every petal with soft morning dew,
And laugh in the eyes of the little ones too...

I can still remember the tune which is really light and lilting. I'm so keen to identify it and to be reminded of the other lyrics!

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Anne
