Wonderfully Catholic

I wanted to tell you about a new amazing CD, entitled The Call to Arms, composed by FSSP seminarian Daniel Alloy.  It is an album of 12 orchestral pieces he composed over a two-year period--a story told in music.  I encourage you to take a look at it and, if possible, to purchase one as 100% of the purchase goes towards paying for his seminarian costs.

The Call to Arms digital album is now available online at:   http://www.catholictexts.com/product/danielalloymusic/

Mr. Alloy describes his work, saying, "Long ago, in a quiet valley of Maridor, a blacksmith named Hugh lived happily with his wife and daughter. One day, he received an urgent call to protect Maridor from a sudden and fearful danger. A great army from Hanidor had invaded, burning, pillaging, and killing all in their path. How did Hugh respond to the call? Where did it take him? And did he ever return home again? Here is his story.

Now unlike many stories, this one is told in the language of music. Each piece is a chapter. That is, each piece tells an important part of this story. But you must use your own wits and imagination to discover what is being told. With that, I invite you to come along on this adventure, and experience it for yourself. I hope that you enjoy it, and, in some small way, may it inspire you to answer your own call when it comes."



The purchase is easy:
-Log in/create an account with catholictexts.com.
-Once you purchase the album, you will receive an e-mail with a link to download the album (high quality and fast-download options available)
This online version is an mp3 music download. CD copies are available in the Immaculate Conception Church Bookstore in Omaha, NE. For bookstore hours, please see latinmassomaha.org.

Riley bought a copy of the CD from Daniel Alloy when he was at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary for the annual quiz bowl, and my children really enjoy listening to it.  I hope you will stop in and take a look.  This purchase is a simple way to help support one of these wonderful young men while he is in the FSSP seminary. 

God bless!
