With love and faith, the tradition of our Church is passed from generation to generation. As Morning Breaks and Evening Sets introduces young people to the biblical form of prayer known as the Liturgy of the Hours.
From the hands of three of today’s top liturgical composers, Tony Alonso, Michael Mahler, and Lori True, this recording and music collection offer seventeen wonderful new contemporary settings of psalms, canticles, and hymns for Morning and Evening Prayer.
The music in this collection corresponds to the book, As Morning Breaks and Evening Sets: Liturgical Prayer Services for Ordinary and Extraordinary Events in the Lives of Young People, by Tony Alonso, Laurie Delgatto, and Robert Feduccia, published by St. Mary’s Press. This book is filled with simple yet profound prayer experiences that speak to the everyday lives of young people.
