Release of New CD Compilation "Journey to the Heart"

Sr. Marie Dunne, CHF, composer of liturgical music and Director of the St. John of God Choir, recently released a new CD compilation entitled Journey to the Heart”.  Part of the compilation is a new setting to Psalm 23; “The Lord is my Shepherd” Marie explained the background to this particular track: “The Lord is my Shepherd” has been recorded by Brother Sean McIsaac OH a native of New Brunswick, Canada.  For some years, Sean (now a Brother of Saint John of God) was a member of the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd. The founder of the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd, Br. Matthias Barrett, was originally a Hospitaller Brother of Saint John of God before founding the Congregation in 1950. On January 19, 2015 the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd fused with the Hospitaller Brothers of Saint John of God. This ‘fusion’ of the two religious orders saw the disappearance of the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd as a formal entity. The Little Brothers  of the Good Shepherd have now become The Hospitaller Brothers of Saint John of God.   In light of this, it is appropriate and significant that Sean should honour the spirit of the (now former) Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd.
