Rev. Chrysogonus Waddell, OCSO 1930-2008

Father Chrysogonus Waddell, OCSO, passed from this life and entered life eternal on the solemnity of Christ the King, November 23, 2008, at the age of 78.

Father Chrysogonus studied music composition with Vincent Perschetti at the Philadelphia Conservatory. A convert to Roman Catholicism in 1949, he entered the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani the following year. He was ordained a priest in 1958 and pursued further theological studies in Rome at the College of San Anselmo. Following in the tradition of his fellow Cistercian, Thomas Merton, Father Chrysogonus lived in a hermitage away from the abbey for nearly thirty years. He was choirmaster at the abbey for a number of years. In addition to his compositions, Father Chrysogonus published many scholarly works and translations of monastic and liturgical texts. A widely-recognized chant scholar, and consultor on chant and translations to the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL), he traveled frequently, presenting at musicological and Cistercian conferences.

The ongoing association of the monks of Gethsemani and the Notre Dame Folk Choir under the direction of Steve Warner has resulted in the inclusion of a number of compositions by Father Chrysogonus in the series Songs of the Notre Dame Folk Choir.

In 2005, WLP began Music from the Abbey of Gethsemani, a new octavo series of music first sung by the monks at Gethsemani adapted and arranged for parish choirs by Father Chrysogonus. This series led to a recording in 2007 of music for the Easter season, Christ Is Risen, Truly Risen! (sung by the William Ferris Chorale directed by Paul French). Father Chrysogonus was a true friend of the entire WLP staff and we will miss his humble, gentle spirit and unique musical gifts.


Christ Is Risen, Truly Risen: Easter Chants and Anthems CD- Waddell

A collection of extraordinary Easter music sung by the William Ferris Chorale directed by Paul French! Waddell has skillfully combined music and texts that span a period of time from early Gregorian monody through the 21st century. A collection that truly comes from the heart of the Paschal mystery and leads listeners back to it.

Rev. Lucien Deiss, CSSp 1921-2007

On Tuesday, October 9, 2007, Reverend Lucien Deiss, CSSp, celebrated what he often referred to as "the most joyful day of my life" in returning home to be with his Lord.

Fr. Deiss, a native of France and resident of the Seminaire des Missiones in Larue, France, was during his lifetime a pastor, liturgist, author, international lecturer, renowned Scripture scholar, and an expert on liturgical music.

Best known to Roman Catholics in the U.S. through his scriptural songs such as "All the Earth," "Keep in Mind," and "Grant to Us, O Lord," Fr. Deiss was also widely known in Europe and the United States as a scholar in the fields of Sacred Scripture and Patristics. He was selected by Pope Paul VI to coordinate the Lectionary psalter following the Second Vatican Council. His Biblical Hymns and Psalms was the first significant way that millions of Catholics in the U.S. came to sing the Word of God and treasure it in their hearts. For this he was given an honorary Doctorate in Sacred Music from Duquesne University.

A tireless advocate of the reforms of Vatican II, Fr. Deiss continually encouraged those who worked in liturgical reform in this country to remain fervent in prayer to the Holy Spirit, and he dedicated much of his life to liturgical catechesis through workshops and the well-known "Deiss days" sponsored by WLP (then World Library of Sacred Music). He was, above all, a man of prayer, dedicated to the celebration of the Eucharist, and was always filled with a gentle and loving humor.

We at WLP mourn the passing of Fr. Deiss, and share in his joy as he lives and sings for all ages in the eternal light of his Risen Savior.

Keep in Mind
that Jesus Christ
has died for us
and is risen from the dead. He is our saving Lord.
He is joy for all ages!
