Commissioned by Christ Lutheran Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, Do This in Memory of Me has already been recognized as a remarkable communion setting. The melodic, contemporary music is classic Haas and includes traditional Lutheran texts as well as some adaptations and original texts. From the opening hymn and sung intercessions to the Great Thanksgiving and closing song, Do This in Memory of Me offers a complete service to be used in full or as individual parts.

Music has always brought Christians together, and since the Second Vatican Council, Protestants and Catholics also share the texts of the Gloria, the Eucharistic Acclamations, and the Lamb of God, among others. Do This in Memory of Me is yet another glorious example of this musical "tie that binds" all Christians together. Protestants and Catholics alike can use this music to make a joyful noise!
