    1. Hi Maureen

      Unfortunately I don't have a copy of the recordings that accompanied this book. The book came from TradeMe, although I have known many of Fr Andersen's works for years, and I've sure some parishes I've been in have copies. But I've never actually seen a cassette tape or CD.

      (And even if I did have a copy, I think there would be some copyright issues involved with loading it to YouTube.)

      I have been amazed by the level of interest in Fr Frank Andersen's work, though, and it would not surprise me if it was re-released at some stage. Hopefully soon!

    3. I would love to send you the sheet music - but it's still subject to copyright, so legally I cannot do so. Are you in Austraia? If so, perhaps check the hymn publications there (eg Together in Song), to see if these hymns are still in print. If not, perhaps Chevallier Press may be able to help.

  2. Is 'Eagle's Wings' the only book of Fr. Andersen's music available? I am part of a choir in Ireland and we are looking for sheetmusic for hymns on the Galilee Song cd. Thank you! Fidelma

    1. Hi Fidelma

      I know that there was at least one other book published (Rising Moon) - this contains a range of simple Psalm settings. It's likely that there were other books also, but I cannot be certain.

      It's also likely that some of his work has been published in other Australian hymnals: unfortunately Trinity Song is the only hymn that has been included in books from the main US and UK publishers.

      That said, Australian hymn books are a little thin on the ground in Ireland. Another option for you might be to approach some of the Sacred Heart (MSC) communities in Ireland, as they may have some of his publications for their own use.
