LET ME BE YOUR HOME 2008

John Glynn & Aquila + The Songs

  1. You are the Lord God of our fathers - A gathering song to begin the Eucharist.
  2. A morning prayer links the dawn of a new day with Christ's Resurrection and the Holy Spirit.
  3. Lord, how can I repay? A psalm expressing gratitude for God's presence and action.
  4. In God alone a strong call to trust in God.
  5. Will you let me in? is a whimsical reflection on our relationship with Him and that he invariably has the last word.
  6. Lord, I long to live in your house Three verses of scripture linked together, almost tumbling over each other in this ostinato repetition.
  7. The Lord is my light Written for the funeral Mass of Frances Savin this expresses the faith and hope which Frances had in abundance.
  8. Penitential Song for the procession to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday.
  9. Send forth your Spirit A psalm for the Easter Vigil and Pentecost.
  10. Raptor of heaven - the Holy Spirit is depicted as a dove. But the Bible says the Spirit "seized" on "Jesse's boy". The image of a bird of prey is the alternative.
  11. Make me free. The first song on which Colin Murphy and John Glynn collaborated, I Watch the Sunrise was written eight months later.
  12. I will bless your name forever. the joy of the constant presence of the Lord in everything.
  13. God, you are my God. A communion song.
  14. Here in bread and wine. Christ comes to transform our human nature and the whole of creation.
  15. What marvels the Lord worked for us! the different feel of each verse of this psalm demands individual treatment musically.
  16. Let me be your home. Written only a month before recording this album, emerged during an Ignatian retreat.
  17. Aflame with the glory of God. Composed to mark the priestly silver jubilee in 1990 of Fr Brian O'Higgins.
  18. Jabulani "Rejoice!" in Zulu, composed in South Africa during a visit to our twin parish in 2007.
  19. Be born again God's love. Forgiveness and reassurance are always there for us.
  20. Lord, come to my aid. pleads directly with God, refusing to give up on his mercy and justice.
  21. Psalm for our Lady's birthday. Is a deliberate echo of the Magnificat.
  22. Believe in me. This lively song with a calypso rhythm celebrates the faith of Abraham, Sarah and the whole people of God.

The Musicians include Christine Thomas and Claire Plunkett.
