This new collection by Marty Haugen features psalms, biblical canticles, and a new setting of the Te Deum for use in the jubilee year! Part of Martys Soli Deo Gloria series, Come, Let Us Sing for Joy offers a wealth of liturgical resources for the Church in this millennium year and beyond!
Recommended for popular use in the United States throughout the Jubilee, "Te Deum: You Are God" was commissioned by the National Catholic Conference of Bishops Subcommittee on the Third Millennium. Written in a call-and-response form, this setting makes the most of assembly participation, and it also offers a Spanish translation by Jaime Cortez.
Several other psalms and canticles featured in this collection are included as part of a morning prayer setting commissioned by Luther College in Iowa in honor of music professor Weston Noble.

Marty Haugen is a liturgical composer from Eagan, Minnesota. For the past fifteen years he has presented workshops across North America, Europe, Australia, and Central America for both Roman Catholic and Protestant liturgical ministers. His communion setting, Now the Feast and Celebration, and his vespers service, Holden Evening Prayer, are well known among Lutheran congregations, while his Mass of Creation is arguably the most widely used musical setting of the Ordinary among English-speaking Roman Catholic parishes. Together with David Haas, he began the popular GIA psalm series, Psalms for the Church Year. Marty has over 250 separate titles published through GIA on more than twenty recorded collections, including such songs as "We Remember," "Shepherd Me, O God," and "Gather Us In." His music appears in numerous GIA hymnals, as well as hymnals produced for Canadian and Australian Roman Catholics, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and numerous other Protestant denominations.
