Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

“The music Sheehan has created for this Liturgy is of extraordinary beauty, depth of feeling, and spiritual exaltation. Although it sometimes rises to the heights of ecstasy, the predominant mood, conveyed by beautiful, gently undulating melodic lines, is one of serenity and contemplation, permeated by a sense of awe and otherworldly mystery. As one would expect from his background and experience, Sheehan’s handling of choral writing is expert, but it is also inspired.”

– Daniel Morrison in Fanfare Magazine
