Pueblo de Dios
by Eleazar Cortés

Celebrate God's love and fidelity with this spirited collection of contemporary songs in Spanish.
Based on beloved prayers and sacred scripture, this 12-song collection features singable melodies and familiar styles to encourage full participation in the liturgy. Offering songs that emphasize the word of God, Pueblo de Dios (God’s people) continues the journey begun with Somos la Iglesia. Inspired by the people of the church, the songs on this CD are ideal for celebrating God's love.

Representing the diversity of the Hispanic church, Pueblo de Dios features mariachi styles—from bolero ranchero and son jalisciense to huapango and danzón—as well as contemporary styles, including pop, rock, and ballads. The collection spotlights an impressive lineup of soloists and musicians and the choir from the Catedral de Los Ángeles under the direction of Anna Betancourt.

Recorded in a contemporary style, "Con Solo Una Palabra" is based on Matthew 8:5–13 and highlights the Centurion who received the gift of faith and asked Jesus to heal his servant. Speaking of the peace and tenderness we encounter in God's kingdom, the verses encourage the faithful to approach the table of the Lord to receive healing and peace. "Sálvame, Señor" is based on the dramatic and powerful text from Matthew 14:23-33, which tells of Jesus walking on water. Adding vibrancy to the Scripture and melody, the text uses son jalisciense style. Together, this diverse collection is truly for all people of God!

Eleazar Cortés:
Eleazar Cortés (†2018) is one of the elder statesmen of Spanish-language liturgical music in the US, with a rich legacy of beautiful music and years of service to the Church.
Eleazar Cortés (†2018) is one of the best-known composers of Spanish-language music in the Church. Born in Michoacán, Mexico, he received his degrees in philosophy and theology from the Montezuma College Seminary in New Mexico and studied theory and composition at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California. For several years Eleazar was a music teacher at Don Bosco Catholic School and director of music at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Watsonville, California. He also worked as a teacher in Salinas and Watsonville and at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He was the director of music at the historic Old Mission in San Juan Bautista, California, for some time.

Eleazar composed four collections of liturgical music in Spanish, including Somos la Iglesia, En el País de la Vida, with songs for funerals, and El Amor Nunca Pasará, for weddings and Pueblo de Dios. He collaborated with Bob Hurd and Jaime Cortez on Gracia y Amor/Grace and Love, a collection of 12 bilingual songs. A versatile artist, he also composed music for musicals, movies, television, orchestras, mariachi, and folk groups. He would also write for national competitions, including the St. Cecilia Concert series.
