Marian Matins is the first album explicitly dedicated to Our Lady by the Jesuit Music Ministry. At a time when many have lost touch with our country's traditional devotion to the Mother of God, this album seeks to inject new life intothe age old adage: to Jesus through Mary. The hymns sound familiar, yet new; new, yet familiar. For that is what Mary is in our lives: so much a part of the landscape that we expect her to be present always and even take her for granted, yet always drawing us, through prayer and gentle remonstration, to deeper union with her Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Marian Matins is the second in the Matins series. The first album brought new flavor to the joy of Christmas with its renditions of traditional carols and familiar Jesuit Christmas songs. This time, a string quartet leads us into an elegant tribute to Mary, Mother of God, Mother of the Church, Our Mother.
