Stasia Very is a Writer and Producer in New South Wales, Australia, offering a comprehensive collection of Christian faith based music in the Catholic tradition with a specific emphasis on traditional hymns. Her career began when she realised she had a gift for singing and accompanying herself on keyboard especially organ for Church music and spiritual and/or country western. After recording 2 CD’s of religious music when a friend offered to create a website for her that helped promote her voice she then began continuing to produce more CD’s and there are now 8 plus the anniversary collection of praise hymns. The experience in launching Stasia’s solo work came after 15 years of being part of a successful Trio as the lead singer in the “Mystics” while she raised her family. Earning a Bachelors Degree in Secretarial Business, Stasia paralleled her career as a musician, with more than sixteen years as Associate to several Judges of the District Court and later the Supreme Court.
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Gabrielle did at singing and leading the congregation at my brother’s funeral on Sept 17th. She has such a magnificent voice, and it filled the little church of Holy Cross, Kincumber South. She didn’t need a microphone. It was truly beautiful.
She sacrificed her entire day for our family, and we shall forever be grateful to her for this most kind act.
The wonderful comments from all those who attended the Mass and the burial have continue to pour in, for this “angelic” voice that filled the air! Gabrielle ably led the singing at the graveside and even the birds in the trees joined in verse 2 of “How Great Thou Art”. It was just amazing!
Gab is such a wonderful, humble, person, who sings from her heart for God’s Greater Glory. We are so very blest to know her and to have had her magnificent voice lift the spirits of many grieving families on 17th September.
Enclosed is a copy of the Mass booklet and the eulogy. It tells of a wonderful human being whom I am so very proud to have had as my oldest brother.
May his beautiful soul rest in eternal peace.
