“Help Us Mary”

Music and Lyrics by E A Alexander
Choral/Cello arrangement by Dan Martin
Recording produced by Dan Martin at Turtle Studios
Soloist:  Donnie Hammond
Inspired by Knotted Grotto by Meg Seligman

My newest song, “Help Us Mary,” was inspired by artist Meg Saligman’s wonderful art installation currently at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul. The installation is titled “Mary, Undoer of Knots” after the name of Pope Francis’ favorite painting. The song was recently performed as part of the art installation’s opening on September 3rd. It was amazing, and here’s a video of that performance along with a bit about Meg’s project. A special thanks to Michael Biello, and to my husband, Burnell Yow!, for the video footage, and to Burnell for putting it all together.

Enjoy. And please share and comment if you feel so inclined.

My community of Little Sisters of the Poor in Enfield would like to sing this song (Help Us Mary) to celebrate the feast of our Mother Superior. I was wondering if it is possible to get sheet music for it anywhere??

Thank you! God Bless!
