    This is arguably the most moving hymn from the last century (apologies to Rutter). It inspires and lifts the soul. One could argue that I was privileged to be in the choir when it was first sung at the Church of Frances Xavier but sung in parts the gym is...

    transcendent.

    As a musician, having fewer pages to turn is always a good idea.

  • 2009-05-18 00:00:00.0 Inspirational Easter to Pentecost song

    This hymn tells the story of disciples discovering that Jesus is alive--from those who meet him on the road to Emmaus, to those who witness the wonders of Pentecost, to Christians today who find that "in the breaking of the bread/he is here with us again/and we...

    know he is alive!" Joyful and inspiring. Has a great descant where a choir's first sopranos can really soar. If you like this one, Michael Ward's whole "Open Our Hearts" collection is great, especially "We Shall Be Changed," but I don't know whether the full collection is still in print.

  • 2008-06-21 00:00:00.0 Great Emmaus song

    The first time I heard "In the Breaking of the Bread" (composed by Michael Ward) was during the Easter season at St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Miami, Florida. Right away I decided this is the definitive Emmaus song. The song has it all - the Emmaus account, beautiful melody, and...

    full SATB score. I find the chord symbols helpful because I'm a guitarist. Already this song is part of my repetoire which I sing to my prayer groups. Highly recommended song.
