The Devotional Hymns Project is a personal effort to share and preserve a heritage of music: Catholic hymns and religious songs written in the English language from approximately 1850 to 1950.

For generations, these songs were a traditional expression of faith, hope, and love. On this web site, I’m sharing them by making available newly commissioned recordings and sheet music from my personal collection.

I hope that you’ll have a listen, and perhaps find some of them as stirring as they were when they were first heard.
