Mẹ Quê Hựơng Việt Nam/Mother of Vietnam Country is a beautifully designed set of resources that reflects the life, faith and music of Father Paul Văn Chi, a popular and prolific Vietnamese composer now residing in Australia.

The 26 original songs explore the struggles Vietnamese Catholics have faced and express the nostalgia Father Paul feels, and the prayers he offers, for his homeland while living overseas. Based solidly on the Bible, his compositions—all in Vietnamese—are well-suited for use by choirs and assemblies in the liturgy as well as for personal prayer.

Mẹ Quê Hựơng Việt Nam is dedicated to Our Lady of Lavang—the Virgin Mary, “Mother of Vietnam,” who appeared to a small group of Catholics in the forest of Lavang during the persecution that began in 1798. The songbook and DVD are invaluable contributions to Vietnamese Catholic heritage, offering words to the songs, encyclopedic information in Vietnamese and English on the history of Catholicism in Vietnam and on particular churches and dioceses around that nation and beautiful artwork and photographs on high-quality, glossy paper.
