“I offer this collection in the hope that its songs might stretch the imagination, support the creativity and enrich the song of individuals and communities in their pilgrimage with Christ through the liturgical year.”
In his collection Here among Us, Marty Haugen offers a variety of songs that celebrate the rhythm of our liturgical year. Within this new collection you will find music appropriate for each season. These songs have memorable melodies and evocative texts that will engage your assembly and encourage congregational participation.
Included is an imaginative reworking of Marty’s “Gloria” from the Mass of Creation. This through-composed setting introduces some new material but overall maintains the melodic motifs of the original. The striking and sophisticated “Save Me, O God (Psalm 69)” will enrich your Holy Week services. “Be Merciful,” written for the Year of Mercy, can act as a cohesive thread effectively intertwining the theme throughout the liturgical year.
