Love Beyond Knowledge with Gaelic Mass
by Christopher Walker

Christopher Walker returns with breathtaking arrangements in this collection of hymns and Mass settings rooted in tradition.

Inspired by the unique vocal stylings of Gaelic music, Christopher Walker has created powerful hymns and a striking mass setting. Each song highlights his signature blend of strong vocals, accompanied by flutes, violins, and horns; a style that is instantly recognizable amongst parishes across the U.S. His music promotes community and growth through the grace of God, and he has provided musical variations meant to accommodate the needs of any parish.

Lyrically Inspired Works Through Collaboration
In collaboration with Paule Freeburg, DC "Be Still and Know That I Am God" encourages us to slow down and examine our lives. The purposefully simplistic lyrics are counterpointed by flowing vocal harmonies and piano arpeggios; perfect for moments of meditation and contemplation.
"Lord, Let Me Love You More and More" was written by renowned hymnodist James Quinn, SJ. His lyrics, while straightforward, are fully utilized in this SATB choral arrangement.
"The Serenity Prayer" can be used as an aid to recovery through times of strife. It provides us with Christ's love and comfort when we need it most.
Plus these tracks are not strictly limited to the liturgy but can enhance your worship experience at a group retreat, communal gathering or bible study as well.

A Mass Setting of Gaelic Tradition
If you loved Christopher Walker's Celtic Mass, then you'll love this new collection; composed of flowing melodies and spacious harmonies. While the two settings are stylistically similar, this new adaptation lingers on soft notes, slowing down the rhythm and allowing flutes and violins to wander. It can also be sung in unison or SATB, offering versatility for your choir and assembly.

Christopher Walker:

The man who penned “Celtic Alleluia” and “The Lord Is My Light” is one of the Church’s most prolific and versatile composers. From Latin hymns for papal Masses to collections for children, his music touches the heart of every generation.

An internationally known lecturer and choral conductor, Christopher Walker is also one of the Church’s most prolific and versatile composers. Born and educated in England, he earned his degree in music from Bristol University. He served as director of music at Clifton Cathedral in Bristol and the Clifton Diocese. He has appeared on BBC TV and radio and his music is frequently played on BBC.

His extensive oeuvre includes such well-known works as the “Celtic Alleluia,” from the iconic Celtic Mass, “The Lord Is My Light” and “Laudate, Laudate Dominum,” which was sung at the Papal Mass during Pope Francis’ visit to Washington, DC, in 2015. Recently composed Mass settings include Belmont Mass and Mass of St. Paul the Apostle. The collection Love Beyond Knowledge includes powerful hymns and the striking Gaelic Mass setting. Christopher has also published many collections for children in collaboration with Daughter of Charity Sister Paule Freeburg, including Stories and Songs of Jesus (Many More Stories and Songs of Jesus was released in 2015).

Christopher’s inspiration for composing music is the hope that it sparks faith in people and encourages them to carry on. He was named the NPM Pastoral Musician of the Year in 2012. His wide-ranging experience makes him a versatile presenter for a parish and school events. His talks and workshops focus on liturgy, music and children’s worship.

Christopher resides in Santa Monica, California, and directs music at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Los Angeles, where he has served since 2000.
