Christ, Our Peace Living Word, Living Bread. Arranged by Marty Haugen. Eucharist. Celebration Series. Sacred. Octavo. With guitar chord names. 8 pages. Published by GIA Publications (GI.G-6936).

Item Number: GI.G-6936

Language: English. Text by Marty Haugen. Scripture: 2. Psalm 34. Text source: 2. Based on Psalm 34.

Haugen has given us two songs that fill one of the greatest needs in the repertoire: Communion songs that can be sung by heart while moving in procession. These are gems. "Christ Our Peace" alternates with solo stanzas in which the last note successfully overlaps the beginning of the refrain, creating a unity between refrain and verse. "Living Word, Living Bread" juxtaposes the popular "Dona nobis pacem" canon, set to new words, over verses from Psalm 34 sung by a cantor or section of the choir.

These are gems.
