Sunday morning music – Christmas Eve edition

I’ve posted some of the Christmas music of the St. Louis Jesuits in these pages before.  It’s among the more prayerful and contemplative contemporary music for the season, without the commercial and secular influences that mar the true meaning of Christmas.

All these songs are from their album ‘Gentle Night‘.  It was recorded in 1977, and recently re-released in a 40th anniversary edition.

First, the beautifully contemplative ‘Patience People’ by John Foley.

Next, the title track from the album, by Tim Manion.

And finally, my favorite track, the very prayerful ‘Come Weal, Come Woe’, also by John Foley.

A happy, blessed and holy Christmas to all my readers and friends.



  1. Hmm. If you're from the Bayou, wouldn't that be Gaston, the Green-nosed Alligator? (Yes, my parents did read us that one, and the Cajun Night Before Christmas. Why?)

    Blessed Eve of Christmas.


  2. I'll pass, thank you. After (&%) years I have a mild allergy to Schutte and Foley music. Heard and sung too many times.
