Young Catholics in Bangladesh write Christmas songs inspired by the life of Jesus

Dec. 24, 2013: In Bangladesh, young Catholics have written Christmas songs inspired by the life of Jesus “Sheep of Heaven,” a Catholic choir, released its sixth album for this year's Christmas. Titled Kuashar Chadur or "Mantle of Fog", the CD includes ten Christmas songs, plus lyrics and original music. It tells the story of the birth of Jesus and his story in the local language . "Through our songs we pray to Almighty God because He loves us and His Son came to Earth for us," said 26-year-old Joyanto Rozario, one of the members of the choir . The band, which recorded the music on modern instruments that are not part of the musical tradition of Bangladesh, presented Kuashar Chadur to the public on 16 December at a hotel in Dhaka. One of their fans told Asia News that he admires these young people because their work not only offers entertainment but also spiritual support.
