It?s a party to announce the release of
Miriam Therese Winter?s new CD
A Celebration of All Creation
Performing Artists from Many Traditions
Join MT as she shares with us how and why her songs
have taken a quantum leap out of the hymnals and
into the midst of the world in which we live. She will tell
us about some of her new friends ? Janis Ian, Melba Moore,
The Limeliters ? and others, as she plays some tracks
from this recording, the first of a five-volume set of her
songs being produced by The Sacred Folk Song Project
under the direction of Dan Paulos and the Saint Bernadette
Institute of Sacred Art in Albuquerque, NM.
CDs will be available for purchase at this event.
Please join us for this free event – register early as space is limited.
Miriam Therese is a Medical Mission Sister with a Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary and three honorary doctorates from Roman Catholic universities. Her award-winning books on biblical women, feminist ritual and spirituality, and more recently, quantum spirituality, are the result of her penchant for exploring new and more authentic ways of living faith fully in a constantly evolving universe. Her scholarship is rooted in what she likes to call the liturgy of life. This is shaped by her multifaceted experiences locally and around the world, especially among those who are powerless and poor, with women who are incarcerated, and with any who are willing to help bring about a more just and peace-filled planet.
While she relishes scholarship and research, Miriam Therese is at heart a singer of songs and a pioneer in introducing folk-style music into Catholic liturgical tradition. Her first recording, Joy is Like the Rain, went Gold in the 1960’s, and her Mass of a Pilgrim People was recorded live at its premier performance in Carnegie Hall. Many of her recorded songs continue to be sung by people of faith worldwide. In honor of her contribution to contemporary sacred music, the Sacred Folk Song Project of Saint Bernadette Institute in Albuquerque will soon release a 5-CD set of more than 100 of her songs sung by performing artists from many faith traditions. Entitled Loving You, it is billed as a celebration of all creation and a tribute to one whose cosmic vision reaches into space and beyond. A former professor at Princeton calls Miriam Therese a metaphorical theologian. To her students, colleagues, and friends, she is simply MT.
