Welcome to My Music Ministry

For many years, I, John, considered myself to be a fairly decent songwriter. I’d write for family, friends, for fun, and for my own consolation. Then, in 1999, my dear friend, Doral Allen, suggested, “Why don’t you write something in Latin, perhaps a performance piece?” I took her seriously, and I began to compose what would eventually become A Mass for Peace in the Third Millennium! My life and my expectations were impacted when I felt the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, who really helped me “hear” the music in my head as I was writing the score.  When I played the score for my mentor, Dr. Sharon Girard, she said, “John, there is no way you wrote this by yourself.”

I thank God for the gifts, talents, and mentors He has given to me. I am grateful and humbled that my music has touched so many hearts and souls.

Hopefully, the Angelus Music website will be your virtual “online retreat”, or a “sanctuary” from the chaos of everyday life. Much of the music is peaceful and prayerful, some is entertaining (even funny). The prayerful videos invite you to contemplate a number of things that are focused on Christ.

Other pages, A Mass for Peace, The Curé of Ars, Music Videos, Golden Oldies, Testimonials, and Blogs round out the site. It would mean a lot if you “LIKE” what you see, SUBSCRIBE”, tell your family and friends, and Contact Us with your feedback.  Welcome to Angelus Music!

If you can, watch Full Screen with Ear Buds or Headphones.

“Keeping Christ at the Center of Our Music

Life Goes On

We all have times of sorrow in our lives.  Losing a loved one is the saddest of them all.  Somehow, we get the grace to accept our loss.  With that grace comes the hope that life goes on, not only for the one who is hurting, but also for the one who has moved on.  I wrote this song for my dearest friend when she lost her mother.  May it help you find peace, as well.

Go, and Serve The Lord!

“Jesus died for everyone. Go, and spread the Good News!”

This is the finale from A Mass for Peace in the Third Millennium.

The Chosen of The Chosen One

Dedicated to Dallas and Amanda Jenkins, Jonathan Roumie, and all who have made the internationally acclaimed TV series – “The Chosen” – such an inspiring, refreshing and entertaining source of the joy, peace and love of the Holy Gospels!
