The response to our campaign for Catholic music has been phenomenal, raising more than $13,000! We are so excited to see such enthusiasm for this important project.
We have the other half to go in 2021 and are now temporarily re-opening our tier offerings, although with more limited availability. All contributions allow us to record more songs for the remaining chapters, at a better quality, and deliver them more effectively to a larger audience–ad-free & cost-free! Join us today in this crucial mission of passing the flame of tradition and beauty through music.

It’s a time of confusion and upheaval for many, in and outside of the Church, and therefore a poignant moment for us to uncover our rich Catholic musical heritage–one that we have often lost touch with, but which offers true peace, beauty, transcendence, unity, and restoration to individual souls and to the whole world.
We want EVERYONE to experience the sacredness and deep beauty of the Catholic faith. We want EVERYONE to be able experience the peace found in these songs and prayers. We want EVERYONE to have a chance to begin their immersion into the Catholic musical tradition.
Your support makes this possible! We are raising funds through your contributions in order to make a high-quality music project possible and available to everyone who wants it–originally-recorded, ad-free, and cost-free, with an emphasis on the most-loved and commonly-sung Gregorian chants in Chapter I of Catholic Chapters, I-IV. We are guaranteeing our current tiers through September 8th, the Feast of the Nativity of Mary. Your specific contribution make this project for Catholic musical heritage possible. Find the right contribution level for you, and share our mission with your friends and family!
Special thanks to Elizabeth Mirzaei for her direction, cinematography, and editing of our trailers.
Catholic Chapters I-IV
We believe the Catholic musical heritage is our common heritage–one that everyone who desires it should have access to, and at a high quality, without cost, and without ads. It should be available in a way that makes it conducive to prayer and falling in love with the traditions of the Church. We want to provide a way for Catholics and beyond to grow familiar with the music of the Church, the Latin language, and perhaps even learn to sing along.
Your support makes this possible.
2021 will feature CASSIA & MYRRH’s first studio project entitled Catholic Chapters, I-IV, starting with an organized catalogue of simple Gregorian chant essentials, and followed by other traditional and contemplative aspects of the Catholic faith. The entire project will focus heavily on our heritage in the Latin language, the formal prayers of the Church, Scripture, and Catholicism’s contemplative heart. Once completed, Catholic Chapters I-IV will be delivered to our supporters and soon after available, ad-free, to everyone who desires more of the Catholic musical heritage.
When you contribute today, you become an irreplaceable part of the CASSIA & MYRRH Family, because you make it possible for us to bring the beauty of the Catholic musical heritage to the faithful and the world.
[Note: We can only currently guarantee Contributor Level options through Launch Month, August 15th-September 8th. Some are also limited availability.]
Catholics Chapters, I-IV, will be comprised of the following:
Chapter I: The Gregorian Chapter
This song collection will be a faithful reiteration of these ancient monastic sounds and prayers of the Church, all in Latin, sung in a haunting solo female voice.

Chapter II. The Hymns Chapter
Featuring classic forms of both Latin and English hymns, these songs will be a peaceful retelling in high language and classic metre of the story of our faith in the hymn tradition. Favourites from well-loved hymnals and Liturgy of the Hours that have stood the test of time will be featured as a celebration of our prayerful and faithful patrimony.

Chapter III: The Devotional Chapter
This chapter will feature original, gentle compositions with guitar, piano, and voice, based in Scripture and the meditative aspects of lived Catholicism, aiding in a deeper personal integration of the truths of the faith.
Become a part of sharing the lived contemplative and devotional chapter of our Catholic story.
Chapter IV: The Rosary Chapter
Calling on the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary is foundational to a Catholic life. This collection will be simple and elegant recitations of the Holy Rosary, in both English and Latin and in all mysteries, placed over original St. Hildegard-influenced compositions. The underlying compositions will all be in Latin and will feature most of the perennial prayers of the Church.
