Liam Neeson records the Way of the Cross to benefit Redemptorist missions

.- Liam Neeson, known for his role as Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s film “Schindler’s List,” is the featured narrator on a new CD about the Stations of the Cross.  The CD features the 14 Stations and prayers taken from the writings of St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists.

Neeson begins the CD by reading the “Introduction,” written by St. Alphonsus Maria Ligouri, the great 18th century Italian saint and doctor of the Church.  He then narrates the 14 Stations of the Cross which are taken from the classic text, “The Way of the Cross according to the Method of St. Alphonsus Liguori.”

“I had heard about the Redemptorists and their missionary work in the Amazon rain forest of Brazil and in the slums of Lagos and Ibadan, Nigeria,” Liam Neeson said in a press release.  “I was moved to help because the Redemptorists are living the Gospel message in some of the poorest parts of the world, offering hope to families who have been forgotten or abandoned.”

Praying the Way of the Cross is the third CD produced for the Redemptorists of the Denver Province by Ray and Theresa Herrmann, co-founders of Little Lamb Music, a company dedicated to providing families with high-quality Catholic music. In 2007 and 2008, respectively, they produced Praying the Rosary with St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori and Praying the Seven Sorrows of Mary with St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori.  On the CDs, the saint’s music is produced, arranged and performed by the company and other musicians and vocalists from some of the world’s finest orchestras and choral groups.

Ray Herrmann is a Grammy-award winning musician and one of the world’s finest session players and instrumentalists. He has spent the last 20 years playing with and arranging music for some of the biggest names in American music: Diana Ross, Chicago, Bob Dylan, Santana, LeeAnn Rimes, Stevie Wonder, George Benson and Herbie Hancock. Ray is also in the house band on the hit television show, American Idol.

On hearing Liam in the studio, Ray Herrmann said, “I was deeply moved by Liam’s reading of the words of St. Alphonsus. It was so beautifully done.  And I knew then I was part of something very special: a production that celebrates Good Friday with the voice of one of the world’s greatest actors with the sacred hymns and prayers of this great saint of the Church.”

Proceeds from the sale of the CDs will support the work of the Redemptorist missions in Brazil and Nigeria.
