Perfect Blend of Old and New


"Adoration" by Matt Maher

Our faith holds such a treasury of texts that have been set to music. As the young Church discovers these texts, their enthusiasm sparks new musical expressions. That is what Matt Maher has done here with St. Thomas Aquinas's "Tantum Ergo." He has maintained the melody to the English translation and added a contemporary worship chorus, resulting in a perfect blend of old and new that appeals to all ages. Suited for worship of the Blessed Sacrament outside of Mass, "Adoration" can also be used during the communion rite.
