ABOUT THE TEXT:

Corona Divinae Misericordiae (The Chaplet of Divine Mercy) is taken from the Diary of Faustina Kowalska, Notebook One, page 197 of the manuscript. Faustina Kowalska was born Helena Kowalska on August 25, 1905 in the village of Głogowiec, west of the city of Łódź in Poland. She was accepted into the convent of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in 1925. She had many mystical experiences and her spiritual director Father Michał Sopoćko instructed her to record her experiences in a diary. It was in the 1930s that she had the visions which formed the basis for the devotion to the Divine Mercy, a devotion which she tirelessly promoted until her death on October 5, 1938.

At one time there was a great deal of controversy surrounding Faustina and the devotion to the Divine Mercy, largely due to misconceptions caused by the numerous spurious translations of her diary. Given the confusion of the time, Pope John XXIII prudently censured the devotion. However, a certain Archbishop of Kraków, Karol Wojtyła, the future Pope John Paul II, made sure that proper translations were made and accurate details of Faustina's life and diary were made known. The confusion eventually parted and the ban on the Divine Mercy was finally lifted by Pope Paul VI on April 15, 1978. On April 18, 1993 Pope John Paul II beatified Sister Faustina; and on April 30, 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized her as Saint Faustina in St. Peter's Square, Vatican City.

ABOUT CANADIAN COMPOSER AND PIANIST, DAVID BRAID (November 1, 2018)

"Sophisticated and authentic" – New York Observer
"Refreshingly uncategorizable" – Paris Transatlantic

Hailed in the Canadian press as "one of his country’s true renaissance men when it comes to music" (The Ottawa Citizen), David Braid is an eight-time Juno nominee, and winner of three Juno Awards for his solo piano recording, "Verge", large ensemble recording, "The David Braid Sextet Live", and small ensemble, "The North".
