Songs to Celebrate Creation

With the courage of faith, the brothers of Weston Priory follow a Gospel way of life, lived in simplicity and equality, and in living contact with the hope and suffering of the world of today. The music of prayer has always expressed the life and values of the brothers of Weston. Their music has sought to capture each "today" of the brothers' life together, with roots in a living tradition, with hearts open to God's future.

As we celebrate our fortieth anniversary as a community, we dedicate this recording with thankfulness to all those men and women whose friendship during these forty years has enabled us to share our life and witness with so many others.
