PORTLAND, Ore., April 7, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- After much anticipation, Spirit & Song, the world's most trusted publisher of contemporary Catholic music has released their newest Spanish-language collection: ¡Vive Tu Fe! 50 Cantos de Evangelización, Oración y Alabanza (50 Songs for evangelization, prayer and worship).
Serving both the greater Catholic Church, youth ministry, apostolic movements, as well as renewalist groups, ¡Vive Tu Fe! combines modern pop and soft-rock worship sound with deeply theological Catholic lyrics to create the most holistic and high-quality music collection the charismatic church has ever seen.
"In the U.S., a majority of Hispanic Catholics self identify with the renewalist movement and express their faith through music evangelism," said Director of Hispanic Ministry Pedro Rubalcava. "Pope Benedict recognized and blessed this Charismatic movement within the Catholic church; and now Spirit & Song is privileged to provide a collection music that’s entertaining, deeply spiritual and theologically grounded."
Of the 50 songs on ¡Vive Tu Fe! listeners will delight in a variety of styles ranging from heartfelt ballads to peppy pop numbers and even clap-along rock anthems with heavy influence from Latin America and the Caribbean.
A wealth of both emerging and seasoned talent have lent their ministry message and talent to this project. Among the most well known are Jon Carlo with "Quema Mi Vida," and Martín Valverde singing "Ya No Vivo Yo," as well as renowned Spanish Catholic singer Hermana Glenda with "Tú Mi Alfarero." Promising new talent like Koren Ruíz, Iván Díaz and many more also contribute to the collection.
The 3-CD set along with a variety of supporting materials like Guitar and Chords Over Text Accompaniment books as well as mp3 playlists and e-Book versions of the ¡Vive Tu Fe! collection are all available at spiritandsong.com/vive-tu-fe.
