A Complete, Bilingual Music Resource for the Rites of Christian Initiation

Chosen in Christ/Elegidos en Cristo is a complete music resource for the celebration of the rites of Christian Initiation for English-speaking, Spanish-speaking, and bilingual parish communities. Many of these pieces have appeared in WLP’s time-tested worship resources and are sure to bring life to the various rites that are at the heart of the initiation process.

Unique to this resource are the pastoral and performance notes, written in English and Spanish, which introduce each of the sections dealing with the major rituals. Each piece includes a keyboard arrangement and contains chord symbols for the guitarist. This resource will assist presiders, parish musicians, initiation ministers, and liturgy planners in the preparation, implementation, and celebration of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

Composers represented in this collection include Sterling Picard, James Marchionda, Lucien Deiss, Lorenzo Florian, Jerry Galipeau, Alan Hommerding, Peter Kolar, Peter Rubalcava, Carl Johengen, Howard Hughes, Laura Dankler, Lisa Stafford, John Olivier, Paul Page, Steve Warner, Kevin Keil, Joe Mattingly, and Michael Ward. 

Many pieces in this collection are also available individually in printed or digital form.
