Warren Petryk has done a lot of music, with a group called The Memories, as part of Taize-style worship, with the Chippewa Valley Symphony and, of course, on his tapes and CD's. He's deeply rooted in Christianity with great appreciation in the ways God shows through all of Creation and the writings of many other religions.

All the songs in this program are performed by Warren Petryk on his CD, from Be Still, My Soul:

Psalm 46:10
Mighty Spirit
Open the Eyes of My Heart
How Great Thou Art
To Do Your Will
The Strength of the Lord
Be Still, My Soul

Inspirational, beautiful,

Inspirational, beautiful, brilliant, God-filled! Perhaps this is a biased evaluation as I treasure Warren as a personal friend. While listening meditatively to his words and his music, I couldn't help reliving many of the memories I have shared with the Memories, especially Warren, with whom I have spent many unforgettable hours over the years. His person and his music have always been an inspiration to me--whether we were discussing the place of God in our lives or watching the Gandhi video together, or just enjoying the range of his tenor as he and his friends shared themselves with us decades ago in Aberdeen, South Dakota, my hometown. I miss him and will never forget how willing he was to share his gift of music, his time and energy, and the love of God with this elderly Benedictine nun. Everyone whose life he has touched has profited by the experience. Thank you for having him on your radio show and giving us the opportunity of sharing it on the internet. I loved it all! May God reward him and you.
