8 May 2003

Yesterday, we had a promotional evening at Catholic Supplies for my albums including my new release, 'Serenity'. About 50 people gathered in the shop for some light refreshments and I proceeded to share songs from my previous albums and a couple of new ones. It was a lovely evening. 'Serenity' is now available. It features 13 songs including 'Sons of Gallipoli' as heard on Television New Zealand's coverage of Anzac Day this year. Several songs were composed while I was in Chicago on Sabbatical. The title takes it's name from 'The Serenity Prayer' which I have put to music. My website will include information on the new album shortly. It is available in New Zealand from me personally and from Catholic Supplies, Newtown. My price is $33 plus $2.40 postage and packaging. If you are wanting to purchase from the States, the cost will be $22 inclusive, 20 Euro from Ireland and $40 from Australia. A personal cheque made out to C. Skinner and sent to 12 Kemp St, Kilbirnie, Wellington, New Zealand will ensure speedy delivery.

I also need to hear from you how the songs have supported you in your own lives or in the lives of people you know. Please email me on frchris@chrisskinner.org.nz. I would appreciate your comments and feedback.
