On October 15, 2018, Pope Francis canonized my beloved Archbishop Oscar Romero as a saint of the faith. I remember the darkness that came to my beloved El Salvador the night that Saint Romero of the Americas was assassinated. I was still there. So, it was surreal to find myself leading at all the principal cathedrals of the country with this hymn of thanksgiving for his witness and life. As a sign of grace, our choir and instrumentalists for that event was transported by a bus and personnel from the armed forces of El Salvador, the very institution responsible for his death 42 years before. We give thanks! – Conducted by the composer.
