Gentle Strength - Liturgical music from the heart of the Philippines
This groundbreaking collection introduces the rest of the world to what many have known all along: The Filipino Catholic community has a long and rich tradition of liturgical music. Recorded in the Philippines using traditional and contemporary instruments, the CD includes some of the most popular liturgical songs used in the Philippines today.

14 buoyant, multilingual songs
Created with the intention of introducing more multilingual liturgical music into the sung repertoire of worshiping communities, Gentle Strength offers songs with verses in Filipino, English, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and Latin. Though most of the 14 songs are multilingual, four are sung entirely in Filipino and two entirely in English.

Reveals the beauty and strength of Filipino Catholic culture
Inspiring, meditative and buoyant, these are songs that reveal the beauty, heart and prayerful tradition of Filipino Catholic culture.
Gathering and Communion songs, psalm settings, a Marian song, and music for use in Advent, Christmas, Lent and EasterProduced by well-known composer and Paulist Father Ricky Manalo and Jesuit Father Manuel FranciscoMixes Filipino folk styles with contemporary liturgical stylesMusic suitable for a variety of occasions, including when the Filipino community gathers separately and when the larger parish community wants to celebrate the presence and gifts of the Filipino communityArranged for solo voice, choir, guitar, keyboard, violin, flute, percussion and banduria, a traditional Filipino string instrument similar to a mandolinPublished in collaboration by Jesuit Music Ministry in Manila, Philippines, and OCP

I love this music and hope to encourage our choir director to bring some of the songs into our worship. Manoling has written other songs as well and I really hope Amazon will bring his other albums on board -things are much easier to buy from Amazon. I first heard Manoling's music at The Chinese Catholic church in Illigan City, Philippines in January. They sang his Gospel acclamantion "We sing for Joy". The song runs through my mind to this day. Beautiful music and powerful words. Thank you Manoling for being used by God in this way. And thank you Amazon for sharing his music with the world.

Even though I don 't understand the language the music alone makes me feel the spirituality! There is not one song that does not inspire me. I would highly recommend " Gentle Strength" .
