Renewal

2012

"Renewal" marks the first album that includes one of Fortuna's most popular, original songs,"What Joy", which he has never recorded until now. "Grateful Am I", a piece originally written as an ode to his parents when he first became a priest, "Holy Masquerade", one of the most elaborate tracks on the album, "Cause of Our Joy", a uniquely styled Marian reflection, "Prayer to St. Augustine" as well as "Forever with You" have all been re-worked with new arrangements that feature lush layers of background vocals, generous doses of Fortuna's fretless bass solos, a rare appearance of Fortuna on upright bass and a variety of percussion with strong jazz and Brazilian influences.

"Renewal" also features performances by renowned Ray Charles’ trumpeter Dave Hoffman, JJ Wright (Director of Arts University of Notre Dame) on piano, and Manual Lopez III (m3studios) on drums.
