His Most Joyful Day

deiss.jpgThe Concord Pastor passes on Rock’s note about the passing of Lucien Deiss.

My first exposure to Catholic music included this man’s compositions. I remember being a pagan child in a sixth grade classroom at my new school and spending about ten minutes each morning learning and singing “All The Earth” and “Priestly People.” These songs were my first exposure to Catholic liturgy.

WLP has a page listing the announcement of his death, plus a substantial list of his published books, recordings, and collections.

The post title, by the way, is how Deiss described his anticipated homecoming to the Lord at his death.
