Description

Six contemporary and six traditional-style songs
Best-known for Mass of Glory, Love Never Fails, and his insightful blogs and podcasts on spiritandsong.com, Ken Canedo is a contemporary Catholic music pioneer. But Ken's a man of balance, with a heart for tradition and unity within the Church. His new collection, Doxology, features six contemporary and six traditional-style songs, many in honor of the Trinity.

Mix of Scripture-based texts and new lyrics
Inspired partly by the U.S. bishops' recent guidelines on music in the liturgy, the collection is rich in content. Three songs feature poetic, Scripture-based texts by Benedictine Sister Genevieve Glen. "O Sanctissima" is Ken's setting of a translation by Benedictine Father Harry Hagan. Ken's new, original lyrics are all based on either the Bible or the Church's official ritual texts.

Variety of Trinity songs
An active parish musician, Ken recognized a glaring lack of Trinity songs in modern Catholic hymnody. Doxology addresses that scarcity. Some of these new compositions honor the Trinity as a whole, while others praise the individual persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All are capable of lifting sung praise to God.

New arrangements of beloved, traditional hymns
Three titles are new arrangements of beloved, traditional hymns: "O Sanctissima," "Doxology" (with Ken's adaptation of OLD HUNDRETH), and "O Triune God," featuring the medieval tune for "Ye Sons and Daughters" and new Trinitarian lyrics by Sister Genevieve. Ken notes that although the recording of "O Triune God" features a new jazz arrangement (with lead vocals by noted jazz singer Rebecca Kilgore), the hymn may also be sung with traditional accompaniment.

Music celebrating the Holy Spirit, Christ's humble obedience
"O Spirit of the Living Lord" is a stirring text by Sister Genevieve set to a simple choral melody. It celebrates the movement of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Featured on spiritandsong.com's The Commons, "Jesus Christ Is Lord" is a modern setting of Philippians 2:6-11 with Jenny Pixler on lead vocals. Its memorable refrain helps assemblies enter prayerfully into St. Paul's message of Christ's humble obedience to his Father's will.

Songs on Christ's redemptive suffering and God's call for peace
Another track, "For the Sake of Christ," is Ken's setting of St. Paul's powerful testimony to the redemptive suffering of Christ in 1 Corinthians 5:15 and 12:7-10. A gospel anthem with lyrics drawn from Micah, the Psalms and John's Gospel, "Grant Us Peace" is a simple prayer that the world may heed God's call for peace among the nations.

A collection embracing the old and new
Long dedicated to serving and uniting worshipers of all ages, Ken has always composed music in a variety of styles, both traditional and modern. So Doxology, like the Church itself, embraces both old and new. Designed for liturgies throughout Easter and Ordinary Time, it serves the diversity of generations that comprise the Church today.
