The TOP 30 Catholic Music Artists of 2018

POSTER

Aleteia

Cecilia Music - Cecilia Team - published on 11/22/18

Fan favorites from around the world on the feast of St. Cecilia.

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is already nearing its end, but that only means that it’s time for the 3rd annual CECILIA CATHOLIC MUSIC AWARDS. Three years ago, on the feast day of our namesake who is patroness of musicians, CECILIA MUSIC, (a special music project sponsored by Aleteia) began a mission to promote international Catholic recording artists and music that is good, true, and beautiful.

This year saw a lot of remarkable recordings released by faithful musicians all over the world, in just about every genre. Though there may be differences in styles, they share themes of faith, love, and hope, which unites them as Catholics and as artists.
