Introducing the first comprehensive funeral resource with music in Spanish! Featuring verbatim texts from the ritual books, Luz Perpetua (Perpetual Light) gives Hispanic communities 52 songs for use in the funeral Mass, vigil, rite of committal and more.

Luz Perpetua provides Spanish and bilingual music to accompany every ritual moment—all in one book. Commissioned especially for this project, settings include psalms, songs of farewell, antiphons, Gospel acclamations, intercessions and more. Almost all the texts are drawn directly from The Order of Christian Funerals/Ritual de Exequias Cristianas (approved for use in the US).

Many of the best-known composers contributed new material: Eleazar Cortés, Jaime Cortez, Santiago Fernández, Bob Hurd, Lourdes Montgomery, Mary Frances Reza, Carlos Rosas, Pedro Rubalcava and others. But many talented new composers are also represented here, including Peggy Contreraz and Frank Domínguez.

Styles range from traditional chant to folkloric styles with Latin rhythms. All songs are accessible to the average parish music ministry team. The extensive indexes and pastoral notes make good guides for liturgy preparation.

Funerals are as much a part of parish life as baptisms and weddings. With Luz Perpetua, Hispanic parishes finally have the music they need to prepare beautiful liturgies that meet their unique cultural and spiritual needs.
