Composer Tony Manfredonia brings his deeply held Catholic faith to his work, whether he’s writing music for Mass or for video games.
Inside Catholic Philly.com producer Gina Christian caught up with Manfredonia, who lives in northern Michigan, for his take on the rise of video game soundtracks, the quality of modern Catholic hymns, and the ways in which music — regardless of style — can build community.
Listen for clips from Tony’s original compositions, including “Kharon’s Crypt,” “The Ambassador,” and “Call of Sarengar,” as well as a setting of “Ave Maria.”
