The Corpus Christi Songbook


Music Recorded for use in
Worship At Home


The main reason we have posted these here is to facilitate online worship during these difficult times.

Musicians from the community have come forward and given their time and talent so that our online Worship At Home web page could have music that felt familiar to our community. There were no rehearsals and they were performed in the sanctuary in a manner as close a possible to how they would been led in the context of the Liturgy. The recordings were made over time beginning late in Lent and continuing as needed to supply the music for the WAH web pages. The initial setup was very simple and was essentially the same as we have used to make the weekly recordings of the Homilies at Mass. Once we realized that that this was to be an ongoing process we made significant effort to improve the clarity and quality of the recordings. To date there have been thirteen recording sessions: March 27th, April 21st, April 28th, May 21st, June 10th, July 2nd, July 23rd, August 19th, September 27th, October 23rd, November 6th, November 20th, and December 10th. New songs are posted to this page as we finish processing them, usually just in time for the weekend publishing of the WAH page.

Also note that since these recordings were made for specific liturgies they do not represent the full cross-section of the music used at Corpus Christi, but rather reflect this cycle of the seasons of Lent, Easter, Summer and Fall Ordinary Time, and now, Advent (that is, during the time when we have practiced social distancing because of COVID-19).

In humble gratitude, we acknowledge the gift the composers of this music have made in bringing these works to The Church.

Prelude to Mass, Christmas Morning, 2020


Also of interest: A video version of music ministers from Corpus Christi singing Shelter Me by Fr. Michael Joncas, published on YouTube:

COMPOSER’S NOTE: These are difficult times for all of us, individually and globally. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted life as normal and called for acts of corporate and individual heroism in the face of present suffering and an uncertain future. People of faith may be struggling to articulate their belief in an all-good and all-powerful God in this new era. “Shelter Me” — is my attempt as a church composer to find God’s presence even in these fraught times. Based on the beloved Psalm 23, my paraphrase adapts the psalmist’s sentiments to respond to our present anxieties.
