Sunday Software’s “Two Bro” audio CD features all the teaching songs we’ve produced for our software, plus a few theme songs from our various CDs, and many of the wonderful instrumental pieces we wrote to enhance the experience of learning the Bible stories and using the learning activities in our software.
For a limited time, you can purchase the CD for $5.99 with proceeds benefitting Habitat for Humanity. Audio samples below.
We hope you get the chance to hear all our songs and tracks IN the software they were created for. “We’ll Follow the Son (Set Sail)” from our Faith Through the Roof CD, for example, is accompanied by a sailing music video with dolphins. You’ll get the “sailing lilt” we were going for as you watch the video. (Why sailing music for the man down through the roof story? Because in the CD you and Peter go fishing on his boat!) Abraham CD’s “O Father Abraham” has one of the most dramatic music video animations we’ve ever created. “Insane Fanat-asy” makes much more sense when you see used in the reflection activity on Abraham CD.
Our goals were simple:
- to teach where needed
- to reinforce the feeling and message of the story
- and to help students focus and enjoy learning through beautiful music and thematic sound.
From Hard Rock to Country, ”Reformation Tuba” to Hebrew Sea Shanty, from Sid’s Surf riff to gameshow silliness, –to Galilee Flyer’s beautiful flying tune, –we’ve had a lot of fun creating the sound of Sunday Software CDs, and hope you enjoy listening.

TWO BRO CREDITS
A great deal of credit goes to Bro 1, Colin MacQueen, the musician and recordist behind most of the music you hear on Two Bro and in our software. There is nothing “off the musical rack” in our software or about Colin’s talent. It’s all original. We spend a lot of time discussing and crafting ”the sound” of the stories so that the kids enjoy a rich experience.
If you hear lyrics, the music and lyrics were written by Bro 2, Neil MacQueen, …Sunday Software’s program designer and owner. I wrote the “teaching songs” to complement a teaching point in the CD. If you go to the software description page listed next to the song title on the Two Bro CD, you’ll find printable lyrics and chords.
In addition to the vocals provided by Bro 1 and Bro 2 in various songs, several other artists have contributed to the music of Two Bro. You can hear recording artist Eric Dove growling on “O Father Abraham”. Artist Aaron Wright is the soaring voice in Joseph Story’s “Go Where the Spirit Says Go”.
Folk singer Barry Weaver sings “Prodigal Son” and is seen in the music video on that CD. Local band singer Steve Swanson is the melodious voice of “We’ll Follow the Son” (Faith through the Roof CD). Jim Kilgore provides the country twang of “Just to Be with You” (5 Loaves CD), and is also our resident doumbeck and mandolin player on many tunes.
“Lend a Helping Hand” is the lone exception on our CD. It was written and recorded by artist Steve Lindsley exclusively for our Good Sam the Samaritan CD. Steve is a Presbyterian minister and fan of our software.
After many years of people asking for various songs from our software, we decided to put out this collection. It’s modest proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, and supply, as they say, is limited.
