Hello.
I'm searching for Christian soundtracks of the last 20 years, about saints and holy people.
I have listened of course to The Passion of Christ, which I find sublime.

Others I have listened to:
Last Days in the desert
Paul, Apostle of Christ
Libres (Free)
Luther
The Gospel of John
Vision - Aus dem Leben der Hildegard von Bingen AKA Vision: From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen
The Young Messiah
The Nativity Story


I don't watch recent movies, so I'm not sure if I've left out any good ones.
I'd appreciate any input.

There'a a Christian themed Korean movie called A Birth. Its score is sublime.

It's the latest one I know of but if I check my collection home I'm sure I will find a lot more.

Two other scores released on CD within your specified time period that come to mind are
Horner's "For Greater Glory" and Beltrami's "Soul Surfer."

And while some of the many independent Christian films in recent years have had soundtrack releases, those discs tend to be more song-based than orchestral. (Although Mark McKenzie has provided some very nice scores to Christian-themed films, with a couple of commercial releases among them.)

But if you'll stretch a bit beyond your 20-year time limit, you could enjoy such wonderful scores as Jarre's "Jesus of Nazareth", Zimmer (& Co.) "Prince of Egypt", Morricone's "The Mission" -- plus of course all those Biblical epics of the 40s and 50s!!

Of course I have listened to all those.
I'll seek the other 2 you mentioned.

Check out Marco Frisina. He's done quite a few.

Yes, I have listened to his Bible series scores.

BENEDETTA - Anne Dudley
NOAH - Clint Mansell
PADRE PIO - Ennio Morricone
TERESA - Federico Jusid
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN - Harry Gregson-Williams
IL DIARIO DI UN PRETE - Marco Werba
THE GREATEST MIRACLE - Mark McKenzie
JERUSALEM - Michael Brook
MAGNIFICAT - Nathaniel Mechaly
CLARET - Oscar M. Leanizbarrutia
CALVARY - Patrick Cassidy
JESUS - Patrick Williams (from 2000, so a little earlier than 20 years, though)

Of course, you know about these from previous recommendations. Carlo Siliotto's DAVID is pretty good, but that's from the 90s. And you obviously know Carl Davis' KING DAVID and that kind of stuff.

Hans Zimmer - THE BIBLE / SON OF GOD

Love this score! There was two soundtracks. One with just the score (THE BIBLE - mini series) and one with both score and songs (SON OF GOD - a movie version of the same series).

Man of God by Zbigniew Preisner is quite good and has a memorable theme.

I second the recommendation for Soul Surfer and The Greatest Miracle. Soul Surfer is my favorite Beltrami score.

Goes back to 1995, but I give the strongest possible recommendation to Olivier Lliboutry's "Marie de Nazareth".

This is it:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt23476414/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5_tt_8_nm_0_q_tansaeng

The movie is about the life of the first Korean birth catholic priest.

Other scores in this theme from the past 20 years:

Il bambino di Betlemme - Marco Frisina
Chiara e Francesco - Marco Frisina
Giovanni Paolo II. - Marco Frisina
San Pietro - Marco Frisina
Luther - Richard Harvey
Il papa buono - Ennio Morricone
Swiadectwo -Vangelis, Robert Janson
The Ten Commandments - Randy Edelman
There Be Dragons - Robert Folk


Also, while not saints, biblical figures or priests, I would add Hacksaw Ridge (Rupert Gregson-Williams) and A Hidden Life (James Newton Howard) to the list as movies featuring deeply Christian characters.
