Rejoice This Easter with the Franciscan Sisters Featured Bossa Nova Gospel

March 30, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
The songs of Brazilian composer Marco Esch are featured for Easter, April and World Youth Day beginning Easter Morning at the Franciscanized World, the vocation discernment site of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity.

Bossa nova's gentle pulse and serene melodic flow evokes a tranquil spirituality. That is the intention of composer and singer Marco Esch's "Bossa E Paz" (Bossa and Peace)

Esch reflected his compositions "are songs of Bossa Nova (Brazilian Jazz), melodies inspired Tom Jobim, João Gilberto and Chico Buarque, but the lyrics are Christian, bringing peace, hope, joy and love of God."

To the uplifting melodic swells of 'Bossa E Paz" Esch asks "Who doesn't need peace? Who doesn't need love?" In his song "Lua" (Moon) he sings of "Hope and faith each new day reflect sunlight into the darkness… God's light and peace in those crying out."
