New music: Vespers 7 now available


The seventh edition of JMM’s “Vespers” series of evening prayer hymns was recently launched. The album, “Vespers 7: Sibol” includes treasured favorites “In My Heart”, “Life Forevermore” and “Pagsibol”. Headlined by the carrier single “Children of Easter Morn,” composed by Fr. Manoling  V. Francisco SJ, the albums’ stirring compilation of praise and inspirational music perfectly captures the spirit of the Easter season.

“’Sibol’ incorporates a well-timed balance of gradual, quiet and even swift tempo that helps immerse oneself in the festive spirit of Easter,” says JMM administrative officer Rey Malipot.

“Sibol” producer Jay Gomez showcases his talent on the flute alongside guitarists Bong Rosario and Bobot Mabalot, from Philippine Women’s University and the University of Sto. Tomas, respectively. Also featured on guitar is award-winning singer songwriter and JesCom sound engineer, Toto Sorioso, in his very first performance for the “Vespers” series.

The album was conceptualized by Fr. Nemesio Que SJ, and JesCom executive director Fr. Emmanuel Alfonso, SJ is its executive producer.

“Vespers 7: Sibol” is now available at all Tanging Yaman outlets.  For inquiries on bulk orders, please call 426-5971 or 72 local 113. It is also available in digital format on Spotify, iTunes, and Deezer.
