In 2015 retired priest and poet Fr. Nelson Koscheski stumbled into a songwriting partnership with church musician and composer Ryan Flanigan.
Together they wrote scores of new songs and hymns, rooted in the old spirituality of the holy catholic Church and the sounds of Americana culture, and formed Liturgical Folk.
They teamed up with producer Isaac Wardell (Bifrost Arts, The Porter's Gate, Sandra McCracken, Josh Garrels) to record six volumes of Liturgical Folk in just three years.
Volume 1—TABLE SETTINGS (2017)—sets the tone for the project with 12 lighthearted settings of service music from the Book of Common Prayer.
Volume 2—EDENLAND (2017)—contains 12 hymns by Fr. Nelson Koscheski and Ryan Flanigan, teaching the astute listener how to approach human life and death with maturity and faithfulness.
Volume 3—CRUMBS (2018)—is a sequel to Volume 1, a devotional journey from confession through Eucharist into mission.
Volume 4—LENT (2019)—consists of 10 new hymns, one for each service in the season of Lent. Featuring Lauren Plank Goans (of Lowland Hum), Liz Vice, & Josh Garrels.
Volume 5—ADVENT (2019)—sequels LENT and is based on the late Fr. Nelson’s final collection of poems, featuring Audrey Assad & Sandra McCracken.
Volume 6—PSALM SETTINGS (2020)—caps the project with 10 new verbatim musical settings from the Psalter.
