Original Pilipino Music
Thankful - Jon Almosara
In search of love ...real, unconditional, genuine love. That's the motivation behind Jon Almosara's vocal and performing talents for Christ. When you hear the passion of his singing or the heart in his teaching, it's the unconditional love of Christ in his life that is being expressed. Jon understands the longing of every person to be loved for who they are, and that understanding is the driving force behind his vocal talents.
"I only find peace when I sing for God," Jon said. That's because his rich intellect and kind heart constantly keeps him stirred. He's learned that it takes Christ to find peace in life's longings.

Famine for Love
Leading people to Christ is the very purpose of His calling for His children.
A lot of people dying, never knew the way to life.
God's compassion is given to all, but how could these people know His compassion if none of His chosen would reach their hands and show the road to eternity and freedom.

Haplos ng Pag-ibig - Pagayanan and Hughes
In early March 2005, Danny had already composed some songs and Kieran agreed to try to see if they both could come up with something good. The result was Haplos ng Pag-ibig, which sounded so great from the initial mixes that they were both determined to try to achieve one more original song each week. Danny returned to the Philippines in April and again back to Saudi Arabia in May 2005, he had already the basic structure for "Walang Dahilan", "Kalayaan", "Kulay ng Buhay" and "Laging Hiling". The result is now on this disc.
Kieran Hughes - guitars, bass, drum programming; Danny Pagayanan - vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards
When people start knowing God, they come to life with an exuberant song of praise on their lips. Thus the beginning of a group of talented, God-glorifying people of "Jesus Christ To God Be The Glory Church International", the I.D.0.4. Worship Team.
The band had its humble beginning as "Tidings of Praise" (1988-2003). Their first evangelism concert was held at Trinity College Gym in 1988 led by Ms. Leslie Santos (ID04 Worship Leader). Since then, they never fail to offer God a soul winning concert annually, which is the heart of their ministry.
They changed the band name into ID04 as its meaning suggests - "infinite", boundless; and "devotion", strong affection, dedication to a purpose expressing itself in earnest service - gives credit to Him who first had given His life.
The group revolutionized by year 2004. Their original compositions, which defined the kind of worshippers they are, fill church gatherings. The team has a total of 57 talented members including the choir.
Ikaw Lamang, O Panginoon - Lito Magnaye
Our souls will find rest in God alone. (Psalm 62:1-12)
"My soul finds its rest in God alone; from Him comes my salvation; He alone is my rock and salvation; with him as my stronghold, I shall not be overcome. On God rests my salvation and honor. He is my refuge, my might rock. Trust in Him at all times. My people; pour out your hearts before Him; God is our refuge."
We offer this special collection of Spiritual Songs to the Most Holy Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and to the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church. May this Compilation be a means of bringing you into His presence and proclaim His mighty deeds among the nations. We invite you to join us again as we worship Him in songs.
The mission continues. In recent years Jesuit music has not only become more accessible through the professional production of albums and their commercial distribution; it has also penetrated new media, as evidenced by the production of music videos that are shown on national television, concerts with with Manila's top orchestra, and the phenomenon of popular artists singing and recording our songs.
Jesuit Music Ministry has ventured into new waters, but the same mission continues, that of bring God to people and people to God, as the citation of the Ateneo de Naga University's Barlin Award of Service to the Church says. Inspirational music is a category that has only recently become part of Jesuit music, as younger composers produce songs that are spiritual, yet are not necessarily for use in the liturgy.
Highest Standards - Lorna Motos

Mahal Ko Ang Panginoon - Rommel Guevarra
It started with God's inspiring voice...

And another, and another... the rest is history.

In Awe of His Amazing Love - Thoughts and Notions
A message from Thoughts and Notions:
In awe of his amazing love... that was the general feeling that we felt as we wrote the songs contained in this album. There is no greater love that exists in this world than the love that we feel coming from God. This album sincerely wishes everyone to convey the message, the good news, that there is someone capable of loving us beyond what words could say. It is our deepest hope that this album would be able to heal the woundedness felt by those who have suffered, to be set free captivity. We offer our talents to be able to share God's good news... in a modern way. As the years that came by brought new musical directions to the music patronized by the youth, a music that lean towards woundedness, loss, hatred, and other negative sentiments, it is our hope that we could offer an alternative to these, without alienating the youth by making new Contemporary Christian Music suitted for the modern times in the form of Pop-Rock, Acoustic, and Alternative Pop music. This is a very ambitious project as we embark ourselves on a musical ride. The artistic inputs and creativity that we poured into this album can only be credited to God. We wrote the songs with a vision: to stand brave and proclaim God's good news and do ministerial work without necessarily sacrificing the fun ride that we experienced in this project. This is a testament of how God's love could move us. It was because of his amazing love that this album came to be. With God's grace, we present to you 10 songs of purely and sincerely modern Christian music.
