This ground-breaking new collection for young people, grades K–8, features all the music found in the Silver Burdett Ginn school catechetical series, Blest Are We. All music (grades 1–6) found here will be included in the new hymnal, Gather Comprehensive, Second Edition. Using Blest Are We music in classrooms and religious education settings is a great unprecedented way to connect youth activities to the larger Sunday Eucharist.
This eight-CD set is available for this collection and includes both fully performed tracks as well as instrumental backing tracks for each song, including David Haas' infectious bilingual theme song. There are also bonus meditation and catechetical tracks—perfect for classroom learning!
