The Dan Schutte Music Story
I’ve often focused my attention on those musicians and choir directors who offer their gifts to communities every weekend. But I’ve also wanted to reach out to the people who sit in the pews on Sunday morning. If they heard a hymn they liked, most of them would have no idea where to find a recording of it. My hope is that Dan Schutte Music will provide the link and access to that music.” – Dan Schutte
Dan Schutte has been composing music for personal prayer and communal worship for over forty years. Many of his hymns have become part of the common repertoire of Christian communities. Steeped in the treasures of Sacred Scripture and Ignatian spirituality, Dan Schutte’s music has anchored people’s faith for generations. He’s one of the best-known and most influential composers of Catholic music for liturgy in the English-speaking world. His compositions have also found wide use in Protestant communities and have been translated into many languages.
Some of his most celebrate songs, like “Here I Am, Lord,” “City of God,” and “Sing a New Song,” are from his years of collaboration with the St. Louis Jesuits. More recent compositions like To Praise You and his Mass setting, Mass of Christ the Savior, continue to exhibit that enduring ability to reach into people’s hearts, young and old, drawing them deeper into prayer.
