Album Notes
Oremus is a Catholic Rock band formed by two brothers, Chris and Tom. Oremus performs clean rock music with a Catholic message.

The band was formed in response to Pope John Paul II's call for a 'New Evangelization.' Oremus tries to renew and reclaim the image of modern music as a beautiful and creative art form, rather than as a medium for rebellion or for the culture of death. "Rock" can signify faithfulness to Peter, the Rock. Rock can also refer to building one's house on Rock, not on sand.

Oremus believes that music gives a strong message and the message Oremus gives is one of peace found through prayer and a close relationship with Our Lord. This is a message worth spreading around.

Oremus was begun in early 2004. Chris and Tom had already been performing music together for many years, including in their Catholic parish's classical choir. Because of Chris and Tom's varied musical backgrounds, they are able to develop an original music style that borrows from many other styles.

Chris does guitar, bass, vocals, sound engineering, and some piano. He is a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering.

Tom does keyboard, piano, drums and vocals. He is a sophomore at UW-Madison pursuing a degree in computer science.

Chris and Tom both sing in their church choir (Holy Redeemer Catholic Church -- if you're in Madison, WI, come listen to them on Sunday). They have been singing together since early childhood.

The Song of Benedict
I bought this CD for my godchild and she loves it. She had a chance to visit Rome when she was a senior in high school. She has thanked me several times for such a meaningful gift.
