Guided by Vision. United in Faith.

Dave and Lauren Moore, founders of the Catholic Music Initiative, embody a harmonious blend of artistic talent and devout faith. Dave, a singer-songwriter, producer, and liturgist, focuses on bridging contemporary and traditional music in worship, with a deep desire to unify the church through sacred song. Lauren, with her unique talent for blending operatic, chant, and popular styles, complements this mission. Together, they strive to lead CMI with a vision that places our Lord at the heart of worship, enriching the spiritual experience of the Mass through music that orients the hearts and minds of the congregation towards God.

I have had much success using the beautiful CMI Mass settings, both Mass of Peace and Mass of Advent. The congregation can sing them, and they are adaptable enough to be used by both my traditional and contemporary choirs.
