Like a River - CD
by Tom Kendzia

Praise and rejoice in the Lord with a variety of liturgical music from Unity Award winner Tom Kendzia.

Celebrate the living God in each of us with Tom Kendzia’s incredible gifts and unique ability to craft songs that inspire worshipers of all ages. With an upbeat, inspiring and modern style, Like a River speaks to us all with messages of love and faith that are sure to raise spirits and ignite the faith of your assembly.

The driving beats and up-tempo rhythms of "Live the Message" call out to us to accept the challenge of following Christ and include vocals from longtime friend and collaborator ValLimar Jansen. Featuring powerfully visual texts from Rory Cooney, "One in Love" exhibits the living God fully alive in each of us through its smooth melodies and warm vocals.

With pieces for gathering, Communion and sending forth, psalm settings and even songs for youth and young adults, this collection provides a variety of music that inspires your assembly to lift their voices in praise to the Lord.

"I have tried over these 30-plus years to offer music for worship that is easy to sing communally, and at the same time, musically interesting for church musicians to perform." — Tom Kendzia

Tom Kendzia:
If he isn’t performing traditional Celtic music in Ireland, you may find Tom recording gospel-style hymns with ValLimar Jansen, giving keynotes at national conferences or composing new music for parish worship from his Rhode Island home. 
Tom Kendzia is a professional liturgical musician, composer, speaker, performer and author with almost 40 years of experience. Committed to parish ministry since 1977, he has served Catholic parishes in Connecticut, Arizona, and Rhode Island. He also works as a liturgical consultant for William H. Sadlier, Inc., Harcourt Religion, Our Sunday Visitor and other major curriculum companies. His articles have been published in a variety of national magazines and books.

Tom has created a body of sacred music that continues to nourish people of faith and inspire musicians around the world. A prolific composer, he has over 30 collections to his credit, including Lead Us to the Water, Clothed in Love and Endless Is Your Love. His many instrumental recordings of Celtic melodies and beloved worship songs are extremely popular. His compositions “I, the Lord,” “Stand by Me,” “The Eyes and Hands of Christ” and “Psalm 51: Create in Me” have been part of the standard missal-hymnal repertoire for decades. His latest albums are Get On Board, recorded with ValLimar Jansen, and Christ Within Me.

Tom brings a wealth of experience to his workshops on repertoire and liturgical catechesis, among other topics. He is regularly featured at national conferences, diocesan workshops and parish events throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. He has performed regularly in Ireland since 2002. 

Tom is currently the music director at Christ the King Catholic Church in Westerly, Rhode Island, a post he has held since 1986.
