Cecilia presents 18 Catholic artists from across the globe in an exclusive playlist

In honor of World Youth Day and to celebrate the launch of Aleteia in Polish, Cecilia Music is bringing you something special: an historic coming together of many of the top Catholic artists from across the globe.

18 artists. 9 countries. All different styles.All cultivators of truth, beauty, and goodness.

From American country artist PJ Anderson to the Colombian rapper Nick “Dy-Verse Torres; from Brazilian samba artist Jake Trevisan to Argentine worship singer Athenas; this album covers the gamut. This is universal music for the Universal Church. Like a microcosm of World Youth Day on a single album.

And even better: It’s free. A chance to bring a little piece of this historic international event into your own home and keep forever.

Those in Krakow will be receiving a card with the free download, and for those of you at home, all you have to do is follow the instructions below.

Just click on the link below to download the Cecilia World Youth Day Exclusive Playlist:

Cecilia was born November 22, 2015 on the feast of our patron, St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music. Our mission is simple: promote music that is good, true, and beautiful. That is, music that elevates and draws us closer to God, because we know that where there is truth, where there is beauty, and where there is goodness, there is God.

The artists are the heart of Cecilia. Without them, none of this would be possible. This album is the fruit of our first year working with these talented musicians and we dedicate it to them. Thank you for bringing more beauty into this world!

Manuel de Teffe,

CECILIA Artistic Director
