But, I am very bad at singing. One thing I love about Mass is that I get to sing as loud and as terrible as I want, and that is a beautiful thing. I've compiled a list of what was originally going to be 10 of my favorite songs to sing at Mass, but as you can see, my list quickly became 5 times longer. A reminder to put God first, a reminder which is always necessary in this materialistic and egocentric world. An uplifting song reminding us that God saves even the most disobedient of his people if they give their hearts to Him.
Our collection of great Catholic songs will have all you parochial school products, former altar boys, and uniform wearers, humming along. And, really, any lovers of religious music will find it enjoyable. This list is very subjective. In establishing our criteria, we considered many things, and upfront, we should clarify a few points. There are lots of Catholic hymns and church songs to choose from, and the list keeps expanding. But, these are the top 50 songs that we think belong in the Hall of Fame.
The celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. There are many well-known Eucharistic songs in the hymnals that we most commonly see used in schools and churches. It can be a song that simply reflects the readings, theme, liturgical season or occasion. Traditionally, this Communion Chant, would be the Communion Antiphon , with or without a psalm. These days, we tend to sing more contemporary songs and hymns during Communion. We think these 10 Contemporary Eucharistic Communion Songs listed alphabetically below are a great addition to any repertoire. Each tells a profound truth about the Body of Christ that we receive and the body of Christ that we become in the receiving. Listen to our Eucharistic Communion song playlist for free on Spotify here.
