Bio

Bob Hurd has served as a teacher, composer and liturgist in various pastoral and academic settings, including Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley, St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, California, Santa Clara University and most recently, Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry.

Bob began composing music shortly after Vatican II when the need arose for new music in the vernacular, music that the whole assembly could sing. Thus began 45 years of composing music for the liturgy. Bob is also known as an early pioneer of bilingual and multilingual music, with compositions like “Pan de Vida” and Misa de las Américas. One of his latest offerings, The Bread of Your Word, includes eight songs for Advent, Lent, Holy Thursday, the Easter season and Ordinary Time, as well as the complete Santa Clara Mass.

Our Common Home was inspired by Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ encyclical, with songs for liturgy and prayer that speak to themes of care for creation, poverty and solidarity. After writing “Every Creature Is Sister and Brother,” he invited several well-known OCP composers to contribute additional songs highlighting the connection between the Eucharist and environmental concerns.

We Should Glory, Bob’s latest work in collaboration with Ken Canedo, provides music in two volumes ranging from Palm Sunday to the Easter Season. Many of these songs set official texts to music. Bob and Ken have also collaborated on a new mass setting, Mass of the Compassionate Christ.

In 2005, he received the Faithful Servant Award from the Southwest Liturgical Conference, and in 2010, he was named NPM’s Pastoral Musician of the Year.

Bob’s most recent book, Compassionate Christ, Compassionate People (Liturgical Press, 2019), reflects his years of teaching, writing, composing and serving as a pastoral musician. It was voted first place in the category of liturgy by both the Association of Catholic Publishers and the Catholic Press Association.

Bob lives in Claremont, California with his wife, Pia Moriarty, who has collaborated with him on much of his bilingual music.
