Bio

Dan Schutte is one of the best-known and most influential composers of Catholic music for liturgy in the English-speaking world. In addition to his Jesuit formation, Dan holds two master’s degrees, one in theology and one in liturgy, from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. He did graduate studies in music composition under the direction of Fr. Kevin Waters, SJ, at Seattle University. He has three honorary doctoral degrees for his contribution to the life of the Church.

Some of his most celebrated songs—“Here I Am, Lord,” “City of God” and "Sing a New Song”—are from his years of collaboration with the St. Louis Jesuits. In 2015, OCP released the 40th anniversary edition of Earthen Vessels, the group's best-selling second album. And in the fall of 2017, OCP celebrated the 40th anniversary of their classic Christmas album, Gentle Night, with a beautifully remixed and remastered commemorative edition. Collections like To Praise You and his Mass setting Mass of Christ the Savior continue to exhibit that enduring ability to reach into people’s hearts, young and old, and draw them into prayer. Dan has also released bilingual and Spanish versions of that beloved setting, titled Misa Cristo Salvador, with Jaime Cortez.

Dan has served as liturgist and music director in various pastoral and academic settings. That experience, his deep knowledge of Sacred Scripture and a strong sense of Ignatian spirituality form the basis of every event he leads. Dan spends a significant amount of time each year traveling to offer concerts, retreats, workshops and parish missions to communities throughout the country. His ministry has had an enormous impact of the spiritual journey of millions of people.

Currently, Dan is composer-in-residence at the University of San Francisco.

Discover Dan's latest work. Marking 50 years of composing music for prayer and worship, his newest collection celebrates God’s eternal gifts of Love and Grace.
