There Silence Was by Liturgical Folk

There Silence Was is Liturgical Folk’s song based on the collect for the Holy Saturday from the Book of Common Prayer:
O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Washer Of Feet is Liturgical Folk’s song based on the collect for Maundy Thursday from the Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Delight In The Lord (feat. Josh Garrels) by Liturgical Folk

A song from Liturgical Folk, with vocals by Josh Garrels, based on the Collect (focused prayer) for the Third Sunday in Lent from the Book of Common Prayer.
“Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.”

Ash Wednesday’s Early Morn (The Day After) from Liturgical Folk

Ash Wednesday’s Early Morn (feat. Lauren Plank Goans) is a musical setting based on the Collect (focused prayer) for Ash Wednesday from the Book of Common Prayer.
I know today’s Thursday, but expect non-conformism to express itself through the season.
It is part of Lent, an album recorded under the name Liturgical Folk, “a music project that centers around Nelson Koscheski’s religious poems set to Ryan Flanigan’s folk tunes.”
I’ll feature the rest of the songs in the weeks leading up until Easter.
