This book contains the Music Score of thirty hymns that have been inspired by the spirituality of the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Salesian Family. 
The first thirteen are taken from the audio album "Don Bosco – A Witness to Light" (Tej-Prasarini, 2011) produced to commemorate the visit to India of the urn containing the remains of the Saint. 
The remaining seventeen are additional scores that contribute to building the culture of Salesian Spirituality. The scores are compiled and digitally written by Salesian ex-pupil and musician, Jay Franco. Most are translated (from Italian and Spanish into English) and adapted for the South-Asian context by Fr. Peter Gonsalves, SDB.

To purchase the CD containing the first 13 songs in MP3 see Songs.
