Into the Arms of God
By Gregory Norbet

Gregory Norbet's new album on receiving God's love, compassion, and forgiveness.

Whether you love Gregory's music from his time at Weston Priory, his many collections of music from OCP or are searching for melodic pieces for liturgy, you'll cherish this new work. Composer, retreat leader and former Benedictine monk, Gregory Norbet has created Into the Arms of God to help in moments of grief and examine the continual comfort in the Lord's presence.

Gregory begins the title track, "Into the Arms of God," with a simple and strong melody that will easily be adopted by the entire assembly. It is calling home. It creates a sanctuary and serves as a meditation on God's compassion. This and many other songs on the collection feature beautiful choral and instrumental arrangements by Craig Kingsbury.

Another deeply moving piece is "Choir of Angels." A song of praise and worship from heaven and earth, it is reminiscent of the Sanctus sung during Mass and will complement any liturgical celebration with its thematic versatility.

The album's cover art was conceived and illustrated by Gregory's wife, Kathryn Carrington. The watercolor painting instills a feeling of peace and relaxation. And like the Father's love, its warmth is all-encompassing. A collection of hope, assurance, and guidance, it is perfect for group retreats, bible studies and other events that work towards spiritual renewal.

Gregory Norbet is a respected spiritual leader, composer, singer and retreat director. He spent 21 years as a Benedictine monk at Weston Priory in Vermont. He is a graduate of the Institute for Spiritual Leadership in Chicago and received his master’s degree from the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University, Chicago.

Some of Gregory’s most enduring compositions are “Hosea,” “Come to Me,” “Ave Maria,” “Wherever You Go” and “All I Ask of You.” Christians have been worshipping with these beloved texts and melodies since the early 1970s. In addition to the 12 music collections published during his years as a Benedictine, he released several prayer books and octavos through OCP, including Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, as well as two albums of instrumental music: Gracious Light and Waiting Moments. His most recent collection Into the Arms of God features 9 new songs and 3 instrumental pieces.

Gregory travels extensively, providing missions, concerts, retreats and workshops for those in hospital, prison and teaching ministries. His specialty is group spiritual development and renewal, using a song, Scripture and the spoken word. He is the founder and director of the Hosea Foundation, a not-for-profit ministry dedicated to fostering "the experience of God's love and compassion in the world by promoting spiritual development in individuals and church communities."

Gregory and his wife, artist Kathryn Carrington, live in Hanover, New Hampshire.
