Serving the Faithful Since 1960

Today CD by Rory Cooney

Today is a new collection of heartfelt songs for worship written and/or arranged for use throughout the church year. Based on the Scriptures, these beautiful songs are appropriate for seasonal use, weddings, funerals, Sundays, or feast days.

Already a classic, “Heart of a Shepherd” incorporates a new refrain with the timeless Gelineau chant of the Twenty-Third Psalm. “Psalm 118: Today” is intended as a companion piece for Rory’s setting of Psalm 96 for Christmas. Both use the same motif for the word “today” (“hodie” or “today” in Psalm 96 and “haecdies” or “this day” in Psalm 118). The use of these settings helps to connect the feasts of Christmas and Easter. His stunning arrangement of Psalm 22 brilliantly depicts the intensity of Jesus’ words “Why have you abandoned me?” Each meaningful composition will evoke prayerful participation from your congregation and bring a theological depth to your worship experience.
