Zack Stachowski, Tom Kendzia, and Matt Reichert (Baltimore, 2018)

Often, the songs that resonate with people the most are those that originate in authentic experience. Join hosts Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert as they speak with composer Tom Kendzia about his song, “I, the Lord,” a song of comfort with a very personal connection. Tom will also talk about the evolution of contemporary Catholic music, give a glimpse into the recording process, explore the role of the producer, and more!

So, please open your hymnal to "I, the Lord."

To mark the season of Lent, we are releasing one episode each week. This week, we are re-releasing one of our very first interviews.

First published in 1991, "You Are Mine" is one of the most popular contemporary liturgical songs used in the Church today.  It consistently appears at the top of "favorite liturgical song" lists and surveys and is heard in parishes around the world. In this episode, composer David Haas speaks with Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert to break open the song, sharing the origins and intentions behind the piece.  Topics discussed include the emotional connections to liturgical music, singing text set in the voice of God, and what it means to "let a song go" when it has found a life of its own. David is joined by friend and composer Kate Cuddy. If you feel a connection to this beautiful piece, it will be deepened after you listen to this episode.

So, please open your hymnal to "You Are Mine."
