In The Beginning....
As a little boy, I always loved to sing,
especially on my swing in our backyard.
And as I look back, it has truly been
a wonderful, blessed life.
For over 45 years, people have enjoyed the gift of music
I have been sharing, in a variety of venues throughout
our Lehigh Valley area, and beyond.
But the picture shown above is where it all began for me.
The Menís Choir of Holy Ghost R.C. Church
was my home, away from home
here in Southside, Bethlehem.
And therein lies the real "story."
My musical aspirations could not have been possible without
two very special people in that choir...my dad,
Thomas S. Bauer, Sr., and our director,
my uncle, Mr. Francis "Hank" Mies.
Their joyful music became part of
the foundation of our parish life.
I was fortunate to have been a part of that special moment.
That's why I chose to begin this prayerful music
with the choir's signature hymn..."Sancta Maria."
I sincerely hope you and your family enjoy this collection
of favorite hymns and songs.
