Francis Month: Streamed Concert by The Saint Francis Band

by Sister Julie Ann on October 1, 2015

October is the month of St. Francis. During this inspiring saint’s feast, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature the perfectly-named, streamed concert of The Saint Francis Band and collaborate with them in offering a free download of their song St. Francis. Find goodness and peace not only in this sensitively-written,  soul-moving music, but in all things! Enjoy!

The Saint Francis Band logoThe thing that I like about making music is that I get to leave the songs open for interoperation. Each song will mean something completely different for each person that hears it, and I love that. I can tell you what it means for me, but I wouldn’t want it too take away from what they would mean for somebody else. I write each song from a Non-Fiction point of view, and the subject are focused around real situations, events, emotions, etc. I think that as people come to hear the featured songs; my hopes is that the raw emotion of each tune will evoke feelings of a deep spiritual nature from which they come, and apply that too their own reality.
