KEEP THE FIRE BURNING is the forgotten and untold story of the Folk Mass, the 1960s movement that brought the sound of American folk music to Roman Catholic liturgy. A fond remembrance of a colorful era in the American Catholic Church, KEEP THE FIRE BURNING shows how the Folk Mass planted the seeds for the modern Catholic music industry and for Contemporary Christian Music. The book includes moving and lively stories about Ray Repp, Father Clarence Rivers, Paul Quinlan, Sister Germaine Habjan, Sebastian Temple, Carey Landry, the Dameans, and many other pioneer composers. === "At first glance, KEEP THE FIRE BURNING looks like a quick and easy read but don't be fooled. Canedo has packed each of the 140 pages with fascinating research, history and very human stories on a period in the Catholic Church which surprisingly few have written about." -Susan Bailey (Grapevine) === "With Ken Canedo's wonderful book, I feel as if I've found the missing link. This is the only book I know of that looks in depth at the Catholic music of the 1960s to provide an excellent empirical account of the rise of the folk music movement in the Church, a movement that was about much more than music actually." -Jeffrey Tucker (New Liturgical Movement)
