If you are looking for some new inspirational music to ring in this holiday season, consider placing the usual Christmas tunes back on the shelf and opting instead for bringing the beautifully composed score of the THÉRÈSE motion picture soundtrack home for the holidays.

Composed entirely by a cloistered Carmelite nun, the THÉRÈSE musical score features the talents of various Pacific Northwest musicians under the direction of conductor Vilem Sokol, who is widely known for his work with the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra. This inspirational score delicately weaves a beautiful melodic thread through the true story of THÉRÈSE, sewing together a balance between simple confidence and a sensitive purity, akin to Saint Thérèse herself.

The THÉRÈSE soundtrack quietly embraces the audience and draws them in to reflect on the life and spiritual journey of Thérèse Martin, an ordinary girl who desired to love God and others in a selfless way. This method of living, simply called the "Little Way" and tenderly depicted in the film, formed the foundation for Thérèse’s spiritual life and led her to become Saint Thérèse, "the greatest saint of modern times."

THÉRÈSE musical composer Sister Marie Thérèse, O.C.D. combined her talents and experience as a composer and a professional cellist with her life in a Carmelite monastery. She offers the score an emotional depth and richness, which inspires listeners to contemplate the spirit of Saint Thérèse within their own hearts.

After receiving a Music Performance degree and performing in various symphonies, Sister Marie Thérèse chose to enter the religious life. "Little did I know when I entered the monastery, what opportunities for musical composition and performance would present themselves," she has said. "THÉRÈSE has been a labor of love and the score is an integral part of this beautiful film."

Produced and distributed by Luke Films, Inc., the THÉRÈSE motion picture soundtrack is available for just $15.95. Order online or call 1-800-651-1531 today!
