By Heart is an ambitious project that aspires to join in perfect union the liturgical rites of gathering, intercession, and communion with music of the season in such a way that participation in these rites becomes written upon the lips and hearts of those who worship. This recording includes simple, beautiful arrangements of some of the most beloved songs of the principal liturgical seasons. Familiar seasonal tunes like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and John Bell’s “Take, O Take Me As I Am” are wedded to contemporary texts, making retention effortless. Alonso and Huck deftly demonstrate how “music and ritual can be so woven together that they become a single reality.”
