Mysteries (2 CD Set)
This 2-CD set contains a musical meditation for each of the 20 Mysteries of the Rosary. Rediscover the beauty of the rosary through Danielle Rose’s original songs based on the Scriptures associated with this timeless prayer. Written uniquely from the perspective of a key figure in each biblical story, these songs are expressions of how the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious mysteries intersect with our daily lives. For example, the Annunciation narrated from the perspective of the messenger Archangel Gabriel, the Birth of Jesus narrated from the perspective of the star of Bethlehem, or the Crowning of Thorns narrated from the perspective of a rose that becomes Christ’s crown. The inspiration for this album came in October 2002 when Blessed Pope John Paul II announced the proclamation of the new set of Luminous Mysteries in his “Letter On the Most Holy Rosary.” Danielle Rose’s “Mysteries” album is both a tribute and response to JPII’s invitation: “Young people, take up the rosary once again.” (CD booklet includes all song lyrics).
