This talented and dynamic musician dove into liturgical music by writing powerful music for the youth of his parish back in 1992 for the Life Teen Mass. Ed Bolduc is currently the full-time Music Director of that same parish, Saint Ann’s in Marietta, Georgia, where he has been on staff since.
In 2005 Ed received two Unity Awards from the United Catholic Music and Video Association (UCMVA): Artist of the Year and Liturgical Album of the Year for In the Light, the music of Michael John Poirier performed by Ed. He is composer of the beautiful new contemporary Mass setting Mass of Saint Ann. Ed was an editorial consultant for Voices As One®, Volume 2 and is the producer of the incredible 10-CD set of recordings from the hymnal. Ed continues to produce the music found in the More Voices as One® music series and the Voices® hymnal coming soon.
Ed’s most recent CD, Hymns (2012), published by WLP, is a 7 song EP of popular hymn texts set to new music with a contemporary feel. Included is a haunting new setting of “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” along with a fresh new recording of Ed’s “At the Name of Jesus.”
Along with being a contributing artist to World Library Publications, he also works as an editor, arranger, and producer on various projects.
Ed’s wife, Karen, is an integral part of his music and can be heard singing on many of their recordings. They live in Woodstock, Georgia with their two children.
Octavos are now available! See below!
