As a Benedictine monk, hospitality is dear to my heart. So, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to this website. I am grateful to Abbot Damien, the spiritual father of our community, and especially to God for the opportunity to share my musical endeavors with you all. In many ways, this is very much a dream come true for me.....for this I am most grateful.
My hope is that this website may be a 'sanctuary' of sorts for you, where you may visit from time to time, to listen some, read some, and perhaps avail yourself of something for your community, your church, your choirs, or your own personal use, be it printed scores of liturgical or concert music, or downloadable audio files and other media.
I will do my best to keep a blog (time permitting) which will center on my being a composer, my love for music, and perspectives on these matters from the view point of the cloister (i.e. the monastic enclosure). It is beautiful to see that even though the bulk of my life is spent on the grounds of the monastery, that through technologies such as these, I can share some of my music with you, as well as my spirituality.
Please be sure to sign up to stay updated on the music/projects I am working on, and feel free to contact me anytime, or let me know your thoughts/suggestions about the site. Thank you so much stopping by. Until the next time.....
Fr Angelus Echeverry, OSB
