(Jaques Blanchard 17th Century)
On this beautiful feast of St. Cecilia the patron saint of musicians it feels fitting to share some wonderful news with you all.
During the International week of of Prayer and Fasting that the Children's Rosary participated in beginning on Sept 21st 2013 there came some wonderful news. Fr. Tucker a wonderfully holy missionary and priest had a surprise. In prayer during that week he had a thought....wouldn't it be nice if the Children's Rosary had a theme song. He had his guitar and began playing. A beautiful melody came and the lyrics just as fast. Realizing something wonderful was coming out he quickly wrote the words down.
Fr. Tucker has given the Children's Rosary this song to be used as our theme song. Our first step was to record the song as it was composed with a male singer. As Fr. Tucker in humility felt another should sing the song, Our Blessed Mother was right there to show us the way. Our wonderful Children's Rosary group leader Cheryl from East Berlin, Connecticut kindly offered to help us with an initial recording. Both she and her husband are professional musicians. Her husband Jeff recorded the song and provided the guitar and piano which accompany his singing.
The song, Rosary Children, can be heard on our new Spanish website sung by Jeff Batter www.rosariodeninos.org This new website has the capacity to play music so this is the reason for the release on the Spanish site.
It also can be listened to on the Spanish site sung by the children with a wonderful slide show of our different Children's Rosary groups. Seeing the children and hearing the song is beautiful indeed.
