Description of Doxology by Miguel Canales
Best-known for recordings like Mass of Glory and Love Never Fails, along with his insightful blogs and podcasts on spiritandsong.com, Ken Canedo is a contemporary Catholic music pioneer. But Canedo is a man of balance, with a passion for tradition and unity within the Church. His new collection, Doxology, features six contemporary and six traditional-style songs, many in honor of the Trinity. Inspired in part by the U.S. bishops’ recent guidelines on music in the liturgy, the collection is rich in content. Three songs feature poetic, Scripture-based texts by Benedictine Sister Genevieve Glen. Canedo’s new, original lyrics are all based on either the Bible or the Church’s official ritual texts.
Long dedicated to serving and uniting worshipers of all ages, Ken has always composed music in a variety of styles, both traditional and modern. So Doxology—like the Church itself—embraces both old and new. Designed for liturgies throughout Easter and Ordinary Time, it serves the diversity of generations that comprise the Church today.
