Oramos Cantando Songbook
Beyond its beautiful cover Oramos Cantando/We Pray in Song contains 86 of the most glorious hymns, psalms, and songs translated from Spanish to English and English to Spanish. Virtually everything has been translated to make this hymnal truly the most comprehensive bilingual resource available today.
This soft cover edition is merely a prelude to the complete hardcover hymnal due to be published in late 2006. GIA’s mission for this forthcoming hymnal is to create a resource that will be an exhaustive worship aid for either Latino communities or Anglo communities and can also serve as a common hymnal for combined celebrations.
The content of Oramos Cantando/We Pray in Song provides a satisfying selection of liturgical music that is intended to encompass the repertoire demands of the entire church year. This soft cover edition makes the perfect supplement for multicultural parishes (Latino/Anglo) in need of a bilingual resource to compliment their already existing hymnals. It is a tool that will help such parishes explore the richness in the music of each other’s culture and potentially begin a trend of worship where all present can fully participate together and celebrate their diversity each in their own language.
Also available is a complete recording of the contents within Oramos Cantando/We Pray in Song. This collection is the perfect teaching/planning tool for musicians of multicultural parishes.
