Another Go-To Hymn for My Playlist

music notes

Not that long ago, I posted about my newly formed playlist of what I call “Go-To Hymns”—songs that are easy to sing along with and can be used easily for prayer services when a pastoral musician or song leader is not present and if you are not comfortable leading song. It occurred to me recently that another piece of music that should be a part of every Catholic playlist is a Litany of Saints. Talk about something that is easy to sing! I think most of us can remember the words “pray for us!”

There are several versions of a Litany of Saints available. I prefer this one and added it to my playlist: “Litany of Saints” by John D. Becker.

If you’re looking for the more traditional Litany of Saints, try this one: “Litany of Saints” by the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter the Apostle.
