Father Cyprian’s lovely arrangement of “Servant Song”

J-P Mauro - published on 08/21/17

“Let me be like Christ to you.”

Father Cyprian Consiglio is back with his fellow monk, Brother James Makil. The pair of Camaldolese monks create some of the most comforting hymns around.

Fr. Consiglio’s guitar work evokes a tender charm through seemingly effortless play. His virtuosity is countered by Brother Makil’s soft, unassuming voice, but rather than clashing, the differences in musicality create a personal atmosphere. It reminds us that all levels of skill are welcome to participate in hymns.

The video was shot in the New Camaldoli Hermitage, in Big Sur, California. The “Servant Song” was written in 1977 and has been in hymnals ever since. Father Consiglio arranged this version himself. It is a little faster than most renditions and the fluidity of the tempo produces an almost medieval feel.
