OMAHA, Neb. (CNS) — The St. Louis Jesuits, liturgical music icons from the 1970s, are back together and have released their first album in more than 20 years.
"Morning Light" is the seventh recording for the St. Louis Jesuits — Dan Schutte and Jesuit Fathers Bob Dufford, John Foley and Roc O’Connor — who were known for such songs as "Blest Be the Lord," "Lift Up Your Hearts" and "Sing a New Song."
In the mid 1980s, various assignments moved the men to different parts of the country, and Schutte left the Society of Jesus. These changes made it difficult to record music together, said Father O’Connor, a theology professor at Creighton University in Omaha and liturgist at St. John Parish on the Creighton campus. [Source]
