This is Teri's fourth CD of traditional, contemporary, and original ballads and harmonies, this time a collection of Celtic inspirational music. Teri is again joined by Grammy nominated musician, Abe Marcor, who adds his considerable musical talents as musician, vocalist, arranger, and mixer. Parishioners of Teri's home church, Our Mother of Sorrows (OMOS) Catholic Church in Tucson, Arizona will recognize Mass music and songs performed over the years as Teri has served as Celtic cantor for the Annual St. Patrick's Day Celtic Community Mass and as Celtic cantor for the former Celtic Chorale.
Songs include Mass parts and songs composed by Ireland's own Liam Lawton, referred to as the liturgical River Dance, a lovely rendition of a traditional Gaelic blessing set to music by Bill Douglas, and a special Celtic Our Father arranged by Teri to a traditional Irish tune. Traditional favorites include The Bells of the Angelus, Hail Glorious St. Patrick, Danny Boy, and the always moving Lady of Knock.
The CD ends on a high note with the traditional Erin Gra Mo Chroi (Ireland Love of My Heart) and the contemporary You Raise Me Up, first performed by Norway's Secret Garden, and made famous by Josh Grobin and Celtic Woman.
