Six to a dozen or so people stand together, huddled next to a piano, holding hands, and praying. "Be with my cousin, who is ill,” says one. “My Dad needs surgery,” says another. “Watch over our children” is frequently uttered at this weekly circle. Other special intentions are spoken. And then, “Let’s sing!”
ON A WING AND A PRAYER is currently composed of Catholics and non-Catholics, men and women, occasional teens, all from varied backgrounds, each with unique talents. There are two regular guitar players and an occasional tambourine player. The group has performed at various community functions including the Portland Museum of Art’s holiday music series and a non-denominational celebration of the mental health community. Most recently, they had the joy of performing at a wedding!
The songs chosen for this CD by the group are considered fairly standard tunes for the present-day Catholic liturgy or contemporary Christian favorites. The exception is the lovely “My Shepherd” written and performed by guitarist and frequent soloist Sandy Brown Bisson. The CD also features “A Stewardship Song,” which was adopted by the International Stewardship Commission as their theme.
It is the hope of the group that these songs will provide comfort and inspiration to all who hear them.
