I’ve come to the end of the songs that I hadn’t already blogged from David Haas’s time at the APMN conference.
This is a lovely song and illustrative of all his more recent work that our parishes reliant on AOV 1&2 are missing out on.
This is a song for communion with references to the Emmaus story. Haas says that he was also influenced by the spirituality of Dorothy Day.
While the verses are for a cantor the assembly has to sing at least the last line, “We belong, we belong to the Lord.”
The sheet music can be purchased at GIA where the text is in their preview.
My backing shows just how good BIAB is at a piano backing, and the bass is great too.
