Help your children learn their faith with these delightful songs from the 1950s! From the Ten Commandments to the Works of Mercy, these songs cover much of the Catechism and they do it in a way that is memorable as well as enjoyable. Our children listened to these songs regularly when they were little and it always delighted me to hear them humming or singing them to themselves. As they've gotten older, they have been thankful to find that they can remember their Works of Mercy in a snap!
The style of these songs varies somewhat but most have a 1940s/50s flair with a mix of a boy soloist, a girls' trio reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters, a male choir and John Redmond himself. The musical quality is such that you won't mind listening to them over and over--something that cannot always be said for children's music.
We created this CD with brand-new transfers from the original vinyl records, and we even found an original, early recording of "I'm a Soldier in Christ's Army" without the warping at the end, as well as a record with two new songs that have not been heard since the 1960's: "The Best Christmas Present of All" and "I Want To Be a Little Missionary."
