“If these psalms can serve the worship at any place […], then my life has been graced with a meaning I could never have dreamed of.” —Rory Cooney

An accomplished composer, skilled liturgist and parish music director, Rory Cooney writes music that expresses a deep reverence for the text as well as a lively concern for the practical needs of the parish. His evocative exploration of the psalms presents the complexity of scriptural prayer in melodically inviting and easy-to-sing arrangements.

Cries of the Spirit, Volume 1 features 13 frequently used psalm texts with Rory's memorable and rhythmic melodies. Written from 1971 to 1991, his settings capture the human cry to God embodied in each psalm.

Featuring psalms for a variety of uses and celebrations, this first volume contains favorites like “Psalm 40: Here I Am” and “Psalm 72: Justice Shall Flourish.” May all these psalms reinforce the bonds and bridges in your community that you have worked so hard to build, rebuild and reinforce.
