 Jim studied music at Western State College in Gunnison, OH and at Emporia State Teacher�s College in Emporia, Kansas. His training includes classical voice, piano, theory and harmony of music. It was while he was at Emporia State that Jim experienced a spiritual conversion, and began to seek for God�s direction in his life. He withdrew from school and went to the Benedictine Monastery in Pecos, New Mexico. It was there that he converted to Catholicism, and began to write songs for liturgy and worship. Until 2004, Jim worked as Director of Music for Conferences at Franciscan University. He had the privilege, each summer, of leading thousands in praise and worship. It was especially rewarding to lead worship at the many Steubenville Youth Conferences. He feels honored to have experienced the mighty works of God changing lives and touching these young people!

From his earliest years, Martin Doman was formed by the deep love and fervent faith of his family. In his youth and young adulthood, he was shaped by the vibrant culture of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, influenced by Contemporary Christian Music and the ministries of Robert Filoramo and Jim Cowan, and steeped in the sacramental journey of our Eucharist-centered Catholic tradition. Having served the Church as a leader of sung prayer in parish ministry, youth ministry, campus ministry, diocesan ministry and conference leadership, Martin has become a seasoned, powerful and influential voice in the formation of entire generations of young Catholics who are preparing to evangelize the world. Because his faith and his ministry have been born of this rich and transforming life experience, his music is a prayerful and profound journey into the very heart of Christ.

The four sisters who comprise Eden String Quartet became involved in music more than 17 years ago, when Megan, at age seven, began walking over to their grandma�s house for piano lessons.

When the girls were a bit older, they began studying their individual string instruments, and in 1998 formed Eden String Quartet. Over the years they were blessed with great teachers, including members of the St. Louis and Dallas Symphonies, and Pacific Quartet and graduates of the Julliard School of Music. Today they travel extensively, sharing their gifts of musical excellence with appreciative crowds all over the United States.

Songs In His Presence has been formed to share new music with others. It works well in spontaneous formats like prayer meetings to support prayer and praise. It is also well suited to the more organized pattern of a Catholic Mass, for which much of the music was first composed. In fact, the "Psalms" CD is a collection of Psalms expressly composed for use at Mass.

We have always placed emphasis on playability and singability in our music. Simple piano or guitar accompaniment is generally sufficient. At the same time, those with access to more sophisticated instrumental support will find that this music expands readily.
