Bread of LifeAdoring and praising Christ present in the Eucharist is one of the noblest forms of prayer. On the occasion of the Year for Priests, the choir of the Legionaries of Christ, formed by seminarians in Cheshire, CT, recorded over 70 minutes of music (27 selections) for their latest CD offering. The choir is composed of 24 Legionaries from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, and Hungary.

About half of the tracks are Gregorian chant hymns; the others are polyphonic compositions in various languages. Songs in Latin include the famous “Sicut Cervus” by Palestrina and “Ave Verum” by Mozart. There are four hymns in English, two in Italian, and one in Spanish. English translations are provided in the CD booklet.

The choir director, Fr Andreas Kramarz, LC, is from Germany. “With this CD,” says Fr Andreas, “one can participate in the vocal praise of God in our Legionary community in Cheshire.” He also notes that the CD ends with the same exposition and benediction hymns that are sung every Thursday to open and close the weekly Eucharistic Hour.

The CDs, which help support the seminarians on their way to the priesthood, are available for $15. To order copies of “Bread of Angels,” visit or the Circle Press web site at . Last year’s CD “Tidings of Joy” with songs for Advent and Christmas can still be ordered at the same websites.
