Catholic Music Selections

I found a playlist of some of the songs I listen to and sing at Mass each week. The website is Spirit and Song, a division of Oregon Catholic Press. To hear the specific songs, go to the Music on Demand section and then under "Quick Links" to the left, under "Playlists" select "Choose Christ."

A few of the songs I really enjoy include:
Blessed Be Your Name
Come to the Lord
Come, Now is the Time to Worship
God of Wonders
Here at This Table
Here I Am
Just Like You
One Bread, One Cup
Open the Eyes of my Heart
Our God is Here
Shout to the Lord
Sweet Redeemer
You Alone

One thing that might surprise people about this selection is that though it is contemporary, the songs are quite traditional and are mostly appropriate for either Catholics or Protestants. While I love the traditional hymns, sometimes its nice to sing something with a little range or a bass guitar floating in the background.

I'm excited to find the songs that have been stuck in my head week after week!
