Love and Grace
By Dan Schutte

With a musical legacy of 50 years, the music of Dan Schutte has played an integral role in shaping the liturgical life of the English-speaking Church. His songs have lifted the hearts of generations of faithful into deeper prayer and worship of God. His new collection, Love and Grace, featuring beautiful melodies and compelling lyrics, continues that legacy.

Unique Pieces Creating a Whole
Containing a variety of musical styles and topics, Love and Grace not only provides a treasury of music for the celebration of Eucharist but also offers a perfect resource for retreats, workshops and personal prayer. Dan employs the richness of guitar, piano, and organ, along with string, wind and brass instruments, to create music that is welcoming and accessible. Each song is intertwined with the next as the collection moves from themes of praise and worship to prayer and quiet reflection.

Gifts from God
Dan honors the rich musical tradition of the past by employing a striking rendition of the "Kyrie" from Palestrina's Missa pro Defunctis to introduce "Saints and Beloved of God," a piece that honors all the saintly men and women who have walked the path of faith before us. Peaceful and angelic, this song calls us to recognize the guiding inspiration of the holy ones who live now in eternity but still accompany us on our journey home to God.

"I Found the Treasure" recalls Dan's early work with his St. Louis Jesuits companions. This re-recording of a melody from those years reminds us of how integral sacred Scripture has been to his faith and to his music. Dan masterfully weaves together two gospel stories that stir our recognition that the real treasure of our faith is the person of Jesus.

Like Pope Francis' papal encyclical, Laudato Si', Dan's "Canticle of Creation" was inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi's "Canticle of the Creatures," where the saint perceives all creation to be a reflection of the beauty of God. Joyful and uplifting, Dan's hymn gently urges us to see with Saint Francis' conviction that all creation, including our own selves, is holy and, therefore, deserving of our utmost care and reverence.

Learning the Music
With Dan's signature melodies and supporting instrumentation, beginning musicians will love the accessibility of this collection, while the more experienced will appreciate its liturgical versatility. Explore the music in this collection in the individual octavos for piano, guitar and solo instrument, or in the songbook containing the entire collection of music.  

Dan Schutte:
Composer of “Here I Am, Lord” and many other beloved songs for worship, Dan hardly needs an introduction. He’s one of the best-known writers of Catholic liturgical music in the English-speaking world.

Dan Schutte is one of the best-known and most influential composers of Catholic music for liturgy in the English-speaking world. In addition to his Jesuit formation, Dan holds two master’s degrees, one in theology and one in the liturgy, from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. He did graduate studies in music composition under the direction of Fr. Kevin Waters, SJ, at Seattle University. He has three honorary doctoral degrees for his contribution to the life of the Church.

Some of his most celebrated songs—“Here I Am, Lord,” “City of God” and "Sing a New Song”—are from his years of collaboration with the St. Louis Jesuits. In 2015, OCP released the 40th-anniversary edition of Earthen Vessels, the group's best-selling second album. And in the fall of 2017, OCP celebrated the 40th anniversary of their classic Christmas album, Gentle Night, with a beautifully remixed and remastered commemorative edition. Collections like To Praise You and his Mass setting Mass of Christ the Savior continue to exhibit that enduring ability to reach into people’s hearts, young and old, and draw them into prayer. Dan has also released bilingual and Spanish versions of that beloved setting, titled Misa Cristo Salvador, with Jaime Cortez.

Dan has served as liturgist and music director in various pastoral and academic settings. That experience, his deep knowledge of Sacred Scripture and a strong sense of Ignatian spirituality form the basis of every event he leads. Dan spends a significant amount of time each year traveling to offer concerts, retreats, workshops and parish missions to communities throughout the country. His ministry has had an enormous impact on the spiritual journey of millions of people.

Currently, Dan is composer-in-residence at the University of San Francisco.
