The first general-purpose collection from Marty in years, Gift of God is top-notch, offering a wealth of hymns and songs for all Christians. The title song, extremely well received since its release in 2000, incorporates a simple repetitive response, making it an ideal piece for assembly participation at Christmastime. Introduced in Marty's musical The Feast of Life,"Where Your Treasure Is" is included here in a beautiful arrangement for choirs and is now available in an octavo. Gift of God also features a wonderful communion song, "Bread of Life from Heaven," set to a traditional Argentine melody. Several texts by Susan Briehl.
