REVIEW

“I came upon this treasure of an album when I met Anne Marie David at the Boston Catholic Television Annual Telethon. She was set to perform after me. I remained behind to listen and was glad I did: her breathy and lovely soprano and her intimate and skillful piano playing really captivated me.

Thanks to the fact that I lost my interview and live performance recording of her on my digital voice recorder that I was to use for my podcast, I explored David further on her website to choose a song to sample. The first song from her ‘Peace Be With You’ album immediately grabbed me -- the title cut to the album, a brief opening greeting that instantly took me to a peaceful place. It also occurred to me what a wonderful choice it would make for a song during the Sign of Peace at mass.

Listening further, I wondered if she had been influenced by Sarah McLachlan and Jeanne Cotter, because she sounds like a combination of both. Her vocals are so intimate, as if she’s in the room with you.

Lyrics are also good, avoiding the typical Catholic catch phrases for more creative images that convey the teachings of Christ.

Soaring harmonies complement several songs, including ‘Only You’ and ‘Love Lights the World’.

The final song, ‘Open Wide the Door’, with its socially conscious lyrics and very easy-to-learn refrain, would make a wonderful congregational song for liturgy.

I will be listening to Peace Be With You again and again.”
