So that our Cantos Apostólicos are never forgotten!
     Our Music Ministry is now worldwide.

This website provides the melody and lyrics to more than 285 Cantos Apostólicos (Apostolic songs or hymns). It contains soothing instrumental music played by me. I have played and recorded this music as I learned it as a musician in the church that my father, Eutimio Rios, pastored in Las Cruces, NM. You can listen to the melody of these songs and you may download them to your computer free. You may add a link to this website to your church's website or to your Facebook, if you wish. I do not need the publicity or compensation, nor do I wish to sell this music. The Lord blessed me tremendously throughout my professional career. My sole mission is "So that they are never forgotten", "A fin de que nunca sean olvidados" - to preserve the melody of the Cantos Apostólicos "viejitos". Unfortunately, there is no sheet music for these old cantos, so hundreds of them have already been forgotten.

The Lord continues to bless this ministry. Our prayer is that you are blessed as you listen to these songs. Please pray for this ministry and tell others to simply do a search for "cantos apostolicos" on the Internet. Click on "comments" to read the effect that these cantos is having on many people all over the world. You can add your comment to the Comments Book on the left, if you wish.

Even if you read nothing else on this website, and you serve in any ministerial capacity, you should read Sis. Stella Cantú's entry, dated 5/12/22, in the Comments Book. She is the daughter of Bishop Benjamín Cantú, who served as Bishop President of the Apostolic Assembly from 1950 to 1963. In the second half of her entry, she addresses the consequences of excluding the singing of our original Apostolic legacy songs in our services. I appreciate her support and totally agree with her comments, as evidenced by my "Thoughts" page on this website. I offered to donate the recording of the more than 284 Spanish lyric cantos (most of them recorded in 3 keys), to the Apostolic Assembly, completely free. I required no credit or mention of my name as the sole musician that spent countless hours playing and recording these songs. I also told them that they could completely redesign the website to exclude any of my writings that they did not agree with. They turned me down! Through these means, I am offering the recordings to the Iglesia Apostólica in Mexico. If they turn it down, this website will soon be closed and these recordings will be gone forever.
