I came across a great site recently as I was searching for some Catholic music: SpiritandSong.com, which was developed in association with its sister organization, OCP Publications (Oregon Catholic Press).
SpiritandSong.com describes the site as,
…a virtual faith community, a place where Christians of all ages can experience faith-building music, online prayers, devotions and much more.
Offering the latest releases by both big-name artists and emerging new talents, spiritandsong.com is THE place for contemporary Catholic music. Link and listen online anytime with streaming audio, download songs, and get updates on new releases through our newsletter. spiritandsong.com also gets you closer to the artists – and supports them in their ministry – with full-length profiles, concert and event listings and booking opportunities.
There’s so much to choose from at spiritandsong. There is free music to download, lovely playlists in the left-hand sidebar, links to various artists’ websites and podcasts, little videos by the artists, a “Song of the Week” as well as a “Song of the Week Archives” (I love that the artists have written their own pages where they share their faith and talk about what influenced them to write the songs), a free Liturgy podcast, an online store where you can purchase CDs or tracks, thoughtful reflections on a variety of Catholic topics, and much more.
Here is a beautiful song, new to me, that I just love:
“Empty“, from Tom Booth’s CD entitled “Captured”. The song was co-written by Robert Feduccia.
