Padre Pio Prayer CD

The Sixteen, conducted by Harry Christophers, have recorded three new choral settings of the prayer of St Pio of Pietrelcina "Stay with Me, Lord" by the composers James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Will Todd. The CD includes a number of other works:
TRACK LIST
MacMillan Padre Pio’s Prayer *
MacMillan The Lamb has come for us from the House of David
Todd Among Angels *
Fear not
Find only joy
Seek out light
MacMillan On the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin
Todd Stay with me (Padre Pio’s Prayer)*
Panufnik Prayer
MacMillan A New Song
Panufnik Stay with me (Padre Pio’s Prayer)*
The tracks marked with a * were commissioned by the Genesis Foundation

Choral Magazine has a review of James MacMillan's Padre Pio Prayer which includes this comment:
The openness with which MacMillan declares his religious beliefs in so much of his music is very refreshing in this age of reticence and has rightly gained the respect of believers and non-believers alike.
The CD can be ordered from www.thesixteen.com priced £12
