Terry shares that over these past 42 years he has been on an awesome journey of music. His early inspiration came from his home parish organist Florence Kowalski. She helped him discover the “ins and outs” of good sound liturgical music.

From his early days of publishing with North American Liturgy Resources, to where he is today, he has been challenged and gifted in so many ways, but his philosophy and focus remain: we form a church that is rich in diversity, yet we are members of the one body of Christ. Even in the midst of constant change in our church, Terry feels that we continue to celebrate Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He feels extraordinarily blessed to be able to celebrate Christ with the people of God through his music.

RPI News Article on singable music in Church


Eileen Carr-Fitting

The glowing reviews say it all, the music of Eileen Carr is eclectic with a touch of classical. ‘She has the voice of an angel,’ and ‘sincerity is the hallmark of her music.’

Eileen’s story started in a lively Catholic, Irish home with 13 kids. Singing while doing the dishes was her university of harmony. It quickly became evident that she had a “big” voice for her age. It was then her brother introduced her to the theatre. She would go on to do many leads in musicals before she was out of her teens. Her musical career snowballed from there. Eileen became no stranger to many genres of music. Eileen has had a successful career in pop, theater, commercials, concerts, and film dating back to the ‘60’s. She took time off to raise her family after 10 years on the road with a vaudeville-like comedy musical duo, “Carr and Shebesta.” Eileen felt that while a comeback was inevitable, she wished to do something off the well-travelled path, something that would make a lasting, meaningful impression to the world of music.

Wishing to bring back peace to what she considered a hectic, stressful world, she chose her medium as a way "to bring back peace to the world." In 1999, Eileen Carr-Fitting released Pax.  Provoking, inspirational, and entrancing, Eileen Carr's voice replicated the solemn beauty and haunting resonance of music centuries old, while using modern day instrumental technology arranged by Terry Sweet to enhance the beauty of her voice and the music itself.

In December 2008, Eileen released A Mother A Child, a new compilation of four traditional carols in addition to Latin hymns off her groundbreaking CD Pax. A Mother A Child also features “A Mother A Child” written by Terry Piontkowski, a new and graced song of our waiting, our Advent.

Eileen’s journey most recently brought her to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC where she was blessed to be able to share her prayer and gift of song as a cantor for 5 years. As an artist, Eileen remains a vibrant voice celebrating the beauty that surrounds us.
