This week, we are pleased to offer you the chance to be a winner of some great Catholic music. Five lucky winners will each win one copy of Deanna Witkowski’s new CD From This Place. Deanna was a special guest on Episode #106 of Catholic Moments, so be sure to tune in and listen to our conversation. Here is a bit of information about this special CD:
From This Place finds Ms. Witkowski leading a core quartet, with Donny McCaslin on saxophones, John Patitucci on acoustic and electric bass, and Scott Latzky on drums. Her previously documented wide-ranging stylistic and emotional palette is broadened by the addition of guest vocalists Laila Biali, Peter Eldridge (of the New York Voices), and 2009 Grammy-nominated Kate McGarry. With its emphasis on breathing new life into texts from nineteenth century poets, the Mass, scriptures, and her own pen, Ms. Witkowski shows another side of her considerable talent: a stunning gift to find the essence of a text and to translate that essence into sound along with a contemplative spirit as an original lyricist.
