Bernadette Farrell Collections

The small parish: Developing your volunteer-run church choir


Bernadette Farrell is one of the most beloved composers of music for worship alive today. Her songs, like “Christ, Be Our Light” and “O God, You Search Me,” are worship staples in the hymnals of every denomination. Farrell’s passion for social justice has found expression in her music since she arrived on the liturgical music scene with the St. Thomas More Group in the 1970s.
