St Louis Jesuits

 The St. Louis Jesuits, a group of Catholic composers who popularized an Easy Listening/folk music style of church music through their compositions and recordings, mainly from their heyday in the mid `70s through the mid `80s. The group, made up of Jesuit scholastics at St. Louis University, originally used acoustic guitars and contemporary-style melodies and rhythms to set biblical and other religious texts to music sung in English in response to the liturgical reforms of Vatican II.

Without intent, a groundswell of popularity took place when college students, scholastics and women religious took mimeoed or dittoed copies of their new music back to their communities where it became known as music by "The St. Louis Jesuits.
