The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 118 – Music for the Joyful Mysteries


Oct 22, 2021

Mark Christopher Brandt returns to the present to debate his
newest album, Pleasure, which is predicated on the construction of the
Rosary. It options the household choir of Mark and his three
daughters, accompanied by Mark on piano.

Mark started composing this music within the mid-Nineteen Nineties, not realizing
who would sing it, when solely his first daughter had been born. On
the eve of the brand new millenium, he determined to take a hiatus from his
profession as a jazz pianist as a way to give attention to his household and his
religious life. In 2021, by probably the most marvelous and sudden
Windfall, Mark’s selfless constancy to God and household has been
rewarded a hundredfold in making an album together with his youngsters!

Along with the album itself (items of which you’ll hear
within the episode), subjects mentioned embody:

  • Why artists ought to give credit score to God for inspiration
  • How Mark taught his daughters to be discerning about music
  • Utilizing music to reverence the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary
  • A religious perspective on “artist’s block”
