Recordings made by a popular priest eight years before he died have been turned into a music CD.
A fourth CD of morning and evening prayer has been produced from recordings made by the late Father Tony Storey, a Catholic priest of the Middlesbrough diocese, who died in May last year, aged 87. Three previous CDs featuring Father Storey, including words from the psalms, canticles and contemporary spiritual poetry, have been released during the past 10 years. They have raised thousands of pounds for various good causes and are still available.
Explaining how the new CD, Still, in God, came about, Val Goldsack, a sacred music composer of Middlesbrough, said: "We recently found the recordings which were made in 1999, and have until now been tucked away in a cupboard. We have added some new music to these recordings, both contemporary and traditional psalm settings, and all have now been made into a 40-minute CD.
Father Storey was ordained a priest in the Middlesbrough diocese, serving at Grove Hill and inner-city Hull. He spent 10 years as chaplain at Hull University and sixth-form chaplain at St Mary's College, Hull. He was also parish priest at Stokesley, Richmond and Bedale.
"Father Tony was a well-loved priest, who had a very distinctive and resonant voice. Many people have told us they got a lot of spiritual strength out of listening to the prayers."
Proceeds from the CD will go to orphaned children in war-torn Sierra Leone.
Still, in God will cost £7, plus £1.50 for post and packing. It can be ordered in advance of the December 1 launch date through JHN Liturgical Music, 3 Poplars Road, Middlesbrough. TS5 6RL, or visit: www.jhnmusic. com or www.valgoldsack.co.uk
