ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Westminster Shorter Catechism is an ancient church catechism originally from England which teaches the broad truths of scripture in a simple question and answer format. Many reformed and presbyterian churches use this catechism as a "standard" for their theological beliefs. I have written music to the exact words of the catechism to help anyone who would like to learn and memorize the shorter catechism. Originally this was written for seminary students but everyone who has purchased a copy (teachers, mothers, pastors, etc) has thoroughly enjoyed it! If you have any questions or want to find out more please visit www.cardiphonia.org

This is the one I\'ll be using with my children!
A fabulous CD--Mr. Benedict has a wonderful penchant for setting the very irregular meter of the catechism to very naturally flowing, catchy tunes. The CD has very nice melodies which will be enjoyed by young and old alike. Highly recommended!!!

Anticipating Vol II
The CD arrived promptly and safely. We love the songs and are using them for our homeschool. The Westminster Catechisms have always been a part of our curriculum. We have 4 boys ages 15 down to 4 and they are all auditory learners. The CD is helping them hide the principles of Scripture in their hearts and the acoustic style suits our taste. We have recommended it to our fellow learners. Thank you for producing such a fine piece of music and rendition of historical Church doctrine.

My husband won't stop singing.
We wanted an easy way to learn the Shorter Catechism, and this is doing the trick. We are expecting twins, and know that we need to have it memorized if we expect them to learn it. Hopefully the rest of the questions will be done by the time they are ready to learn them :)

VERY impressive.... I love it!
This is an amazing project. What an undertaking! Bruce pulls it off with style. The music is folk-rock, well-layered, and the vocals are very clean. This is quality- simple, joyful, and reverent. Bruce, if you are reading this, we went to RTS together once upon a time. Wonderful work, and I look forward to the next CD. And may Christ encourage you as you listen to this beautiful work.
