For Barbara – my sister in Jesus Christ

Barbara, not only I promised an Ave Maria to bring you Peace and Love of Jesus into your heart, but also anyone who likes that song will pray one Ave Maria for your health and happiness. Am I right, readers of this web page? If you like the song, please send one Ave Maria for Barbara.

Here are the lyrics:

San Damiano

Only you San Damiano
Lady of the Roses own
Only you San Damiano
Far from here, but close to home

I want you go same as me
I want you to know all I’ve seen
All corners of the world
A message to be heard
With heart and soul, heart and soul

Only you San Damiano
Lady of the Roses own
Only you San Damiano
Far from here, but close to home

Oh tranquility all around
Peace and mystery to be found
Travel the world and still
Can other places fill
Your heart and soul, heart and soul

Only you San Damiano
Lady of the Roses own
Only you San Damiano
Far from here, but close to home

Corner of Paradise
A golden chain has tied
Us heart and soul, heart and soul

Only you San Damiano,
Lady of the Roses own
Only you San Damiano
Far from here, but close to home

After a pilgrimage to San Damiano, a small village in Italy near Piacenza, Solo embraced the Roman Catholic faith of his childhood and continued in the music industry for a short time. He had a solo hit with “San Damiano (Heart And Soul)” which reached #15 in the UK Singles Chart, and went to #1 in Poland; and a minor hit with “Music and You”. For “San Damiano”, he was backed by boy choristers from the St Philip’s Choir, but the first television clip (made in Poland) was recorded with a Polish boys’ choir – the Poznanskie Slowiki. In 2003, Aled Jones recorded a new version of “San Damiano” for his album Higher, which remained in the UK Albums Chart Top 40 for several weeks, and earned a silver disc. The song has also been recorded by other artistes, including Angel Voices (St Philip’s Choir), which released their own all-treble version.

After 1987, Solo stopped recording music commercially, and became active in youth ministry in the Catholic Church in the UK. During this time, he continued to write and perform new music and in the early 1990s he released three albums of Christian music through the Christian record label, Word Records, followed by several more released independently. His latest recordings and videos can be found on his own website and on sites such as MySpace and YouTube. In 1999, he moved to Chicago and now works with Catholic teens in the United States and other parts of the world, speaking on matters of faith and justice, and giving concerts and youth retreats.
