Biography

The St. Louis Jesuits are a group of Catholic composers who popularized a contemporary style of church music through their compositions and recordings in the 1970s and 1980s. The group, made up of Jesuit scholastics at Saint Louis University, originally used acoustic guitars and pop-style melodies and rhythms to set Biblical and other religious texts to music sung in English in response to the liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council.

Without intent, a groundswell of popularity took place when students, seminarians, and women religious took stenciled mimeographed copies of their new music back to their communities where it became known as music by the “St. Louis Jesuits.”
