The music of this prolific composer has helped engage Latino-Americans in the liturgy for years. Through close collaboration between Juan Antonio and OCP’s Hispanic Ministries, the 13 songs that resonate the most with U.S. Hispanic communities are now available in one collection—including six published in the U.S. for the first time!

From rock and blues to gospel and jazz, new contemporary arrangements breathe new life into the music you know and love. Rediscover familiar songs or introduce them to a new generation. The rich and beautiful instrumentation features electric guitars, keyboards and authentic Latin American instruments like zampoña (traditional Andean panpipe) and bombo legüero (a type of drum).

“A Dios de Gracias los Pueblos” opens the album with its edgy guitars and driving rock rhythm. The Andean-flavored “Ven Pronto” masterfully captures the longing and urgency found in the texts. Destined for crossover appeal and anchored by an emotional female vocal, “Eres Uno de los Nuestros” is a tender ballad that gently draws the listener into the depth of the Eucharist.

These are the songs of the assembly who gather to celebrate the resurrection and life of our Lord—and whose journey makes them celebrants in life and celebrants of life. As Espinosa explains, this collection invites us to live and experience “the God who is a close friend, who became one of us, lived our life and, who, by conquering death, created a path of hope for us.”
