Gathered for God is the collaboration of eleven talented composers joining forces to create music that celebrates God's love for us. The songs in this collection are great for a variety of liturgical uses. Marty Haugen's “The Reign of God Is Near” is the perfect complement for a triumphant entrance procession. The poignant text of John Bell's “Dolorosa” will bring comfort in times of sorrow. Liam Lawton's “Eternal Is Your Love” has a beautiful melody embracing an expressive refrain that simply begs to be sung. “Praise the God of All Beginnings,” by Michael Joncas, employs a festive text by Herman G. Stuempfle Jr. And that's not all. The collection also includes new music from other great composers like Chris de Silva, Tony Alonso, Rory Cooney, Gary Daigle, Francis Patrick O'Brien, Donna Peña, and Michael Mahler. This collection is a must-have!
