2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana July Sisters Continued from Page 1 been involved in directing liturgical music in parishes five years at St. William Church in Chicago, and since June, in St. James Church, Elizabethtown, Ky. At her new position, Sister Stallings enjoys being closer to her family. She and her mother have been able to make "drop-in" visits. The first recording of the Sisters in Song was made in January, when Sister Stallings was in Chicago. At first she thought it was a wonderful op- portunity to go to Los Angeles and get away from a Chicago winter, but the recording ses- sion soon became much more than that. Sister Stallings said she ex- pected to have a musical expe- rience, but she was surprised by the experience of faith and commitment she felt among the 60 sisters. Their ages I ranged from the 20s to around 70, and they represented a wide variety of professional commitments. They were parish, school, diocesan and congregational leaders. The 60 sisters spent a week, Monday through Friday, re- hearsing in the morning and recording in the evenings at a church in Los Angeles. Techni- cians took the choral portions to a studio where instrumental tracks were added. The first recording includes such contemporary favorites as "Eagle's Wings," an arrange- ment of "Amazing Grace," sev- eral classical choral selections, and a contemporary chant style piece, "Oh Holy Mary," which Sister Stallings said she finds to be "really stirring." The Christmas album in- cludes contemporary songs and traditional carols. The 60 sisters plan to sing at the National Pastoral Musi- cians Convention in Cincinnati next summer, but their com- mitments make further perfor- mances extremely difficult, and perhaps impossible, ac- cording to Sister Stallings. Among the 60 sisters are also two other Sisters of Provi- dence of Saint Mary-of-the- Woods -- Sisters Kathy Burke and Dawn Tomaszewski. The singers were selected from au- dition tapes sent in from al- most 300 sisters whose names had been suggested by their congregations. The choir members selected represent 26 religious commu- nities in the United States. Frank Brownstead, director of music for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, serves a musical director of the choir. St. Joseph Sara was the project director. "Sisters in Song available from Oregon Press for $9.95 (CasSe! #9974) or $12.95 Disc #9975) plus handling.
