Peter Beirer – All Creation Groans - Catholic CD Review


Peter Beirer’s debut album All Creation Groans comes from the long time music minister/singer/songwriter and performer. The album was written over a period of eight years and its musical diversity reflects the different spiritual seasons in Beirer’s life.

Beirer combines horns and jazzy beats reminiscent of Skaa music with gritty vocals and honest lyrics. The result is an authentic, live feel. Even the album art consisting of drawings of skeletons underground, a lamb in a womb, and the Virgin Mary with angel wings contributes to the mood of unabashed honesty within the music. Highlights on the album include the upbeat catchy opening tune “Creation,” “Alone,” and “Long Time.”

Beirer’s website reveals he is currently working full time as the Coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Mankato, MN, leading liturgical choirs, coordinating Young Neighbors in Action, operating as adjunct staff to the Center for Ministry Development.
