GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 6, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — For National Vocation Awareness Week, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity offer a download of guitarist Paul Finley’s instrumental “Breathe,” a ‘pause for the breath of possibility’ for young Catholic men and women discerning their calling and vocation. Visit the Franciscanized World.
Paul reflected that “Breathe” was a good lesson in editing ideas…. The original version of the piece had another half to it. But I couldn’t find a bridge between the two. A film maker friend of mine needed music for his project and I knew the first half would work well…. It said what it needed to and was beautiful in its own right.”
Born and raised in Wisconsin and presently living in Austin, Texas Paul Finley is a true journeyman who explores the depth of human joy and pain through the universal language of music. The music narrates the story of the subject — war, nature, people, and romance.
A former faculty member and graduate of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, Paul has studied privately and took master classes with Michael Hedges, Fareed Haque, John Stropes and others. He teaches at the Austin Guitar School.
Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education and Parish-Community Service throughout the United States. Mission locations extend from Hawaii to the Diocese of Phoenix, from Campus Ministry outreach to parochial schools in the Green Bay Diocese.
The World needs you. God Calls You. We Invite You. Catholic vocations.
