Rose Augustine is a songwriting dymano. She has been writing music since 1982, when she was recovering from a serious automobile accident. Already a writer of poetry, she began to have ideas for songs for use at her church. And the songs keep on coming. To date, Rose has composed more than 300 songs on all kinds of subjects.
Over the years, she has put her music into various themed albums. This CD features songs for a variety of holidays and events, such as Advent/Christmas, Easter, Weddings, Patriotic, and Thanksgiving. The songs are well-crafted and performed by The Good Shepherd Singers who have sung on most of her projects. One thing that might enhance Rose's music would be the availability of sheet music for the songs she has written. I'm not sure if she has considered it, but that could be a possibility.
Here is the song track listing:
Ring Those Bells
Across the Miles
Memories of Auld Lang Syne
Give Praise to the Risen Lord
Alleluia, He is Risen
Hosanna, Hosanna, Jesus Is Risen
With This Ring, I Thee Wed
This Sacrament of Love
Parents Wedding Prayer
Lord, Please Hold Them Close While They Cry
My Land of Liberty
I Thank Thee, Lord
