ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ALL THE WORLD IS SACRED (Songs for Children)
Peter Kearney's second album especially for children, originally released in 1996. Sixteen songs for faith education and celebration. Lyrics, melodies, lyrics and chords for all songs are available as CD-Rom from Peter Kearney.

TRACK LIST - NOTES ON THE SONGS
1. COME LET US SING
2. ALL THE WORLD IS SACRED
3. ALL THANK GOD. Mentioning several unique Australian creatures.
4. WHEN I PRAY
5. THE TRUE MAGICIAN - As the song makes clear, this is not about trickery but 'true magic', meaning 'wonderful, exciting . . . producing surprising results'. Peter wrote this song after reading 'The Secret Garden' by Frances Hodgson-Burnett.'
6. JESUS LAUGHED - A light-hearted song. If we read between the lines of the Gospels, we can see Jesus relaxing, enjoying himself, sharing meals with publicans and sinners, sending up the pompous and the anxious, offending the narrow views of the establishment authority.
7. I'M A BIRDY
8. LOOKING FOR THE SEED
9. LIVING IN THE LAND OF AUSTRALIA
10. MARY IN BLACK - A dramatic song telling three episodes in the life of Mary MacKillop (in her late teens and early 20's). As a young governess Mary insisted on looking after an aboriginal child on her uncle's cattle station near Penola, South Australia. Later she started a school in a converted stable. Then she put on a black dress to signify she was starting to live the life of a dedicated religious. Mary is now St. Mary MacKillop of the Cross, Australia's first saint.
11. WHO'S THAT?
12. DRY BONES - A lively setting of the message of the prophet Ezekiel, comparing unloving people to 'dry bones'. A gruesome title, but to teachers' surprise, the children really enjoy this song.
13. RAIN IN THE AIR
14. A BRIDGE IN THE SKY (The Rainbow) - Teachers say that the rainbow is a favourite symbol for children .
15. THE CHRIST CHILD LAY - Peter's musical setting of the beautiful poem by English author G.K.Chesterton 1874-1936.
16. THEN WE GO IN YOUR PEACE

COMMENTS:
"All the World is Sacred makes me have nice dreams and get sleep". (Alisha)

“What a truly spirit-stirring, prayerful collection of songs - greatly loved by children and teacher!” (Meg)

"Yet again, Peter Kearney has presented us with a gift of music and lyrics with a universal message against a vibrant Australian mural. It hold special appeal for children and those who are children at heart. When I use one of these songs to support my lesson, it's like adding splashes of colour to a black and white sketch".(Carmel)

"The children vote 'yes'. Beautifully alive ... resonates with with rhythm and richness of an Australian spirituality ... A great teaching resource easily used and adapted to many themes." (Bernadette)

"Just lovely ... manages so well to present the Australian environment as an authentic venue for the sacred and divine." (Marie Prenderville)

"It is refreshing to find a CD such as 'All The World Is Sacred' in which just about every song has a use in the classroom and school. Too often religious albums for schools have one or two terrific songs and the rest are nice to listen to but not much use, particularly for singing in the school. 'All the World Is Sacred' is an exception. I've used 'All Thank God' in Kindergarden. They love the line about 'picking on the Kindies' in 'Who's That!'. We have used 'Looking For The Seed' and 'Then We Go In Your Peace' at many school masses and the latter was especially appropriate at Graduation. Our older boys love 'Dry Bones' and the teachers loved 'Mary In Black' and many hope to use it in their classrooms. In these days of ever reducing budgets for schools, it is a bonus to find a collection of songs that can be used in such a variety of ways." (Susanne Schmidt)
