In the mid-1950s, Songwriter and World War II Veteran John Redmond set out to teach children their catechism using catchy contemporary tunes. Those efforts resulted in two albums: Seven Songs on the Seven Sacraments with The Ten Commandments Song for Little Children, and Twelve Songs... on the Apostles Creed. The idea took hold and these songs are beloved even today as an effective way for children to learn their faith by heart, and have fun while doing it! The principal tenets of our faith, including the Commandments, the Sacraments, The Works of Mercy and the Articles of the Creed are all covered with these songs, which capture the innocence of a bygone era.
Most of these songs have been available on CD and DVD for several years; now for the first time, all the sheet music for these songs, as well as others John Redmond wrote for the Religious Music Guild, have been collected and arranged in one booklet! Experience the joy of singing these heartwarming melodies with your family using these updated arrangements for piano, voice and guitar.
Free downloadable mp3s of the accompaniments are available from the St. Augustine Academy Press website, so that children can practice or perform these songs without the need for an accompanist. A newly remastered CD of this music, including two previously unheard songs and a clean early recording of "I'm a Soldier in Christ's Army," is also now available from St. Augustine Academy Press.
