An ecumenical, cross-cultural, and profound call for peace...
A deep desire for justice in our world is one of the common themes shared by all people of faith and goodwill. We, the faith-filled, exhort a desire to be heard, understood, and protected by God. We look forward to a day when our world will know a harvest of peace. In the Days to Come, a new recording by Marty Haugen and Marc Anderson, includes Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhist texts coupled with music from North America, Central America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. It is an interfaith project centered on peacemaking. The title song profoundly and eloquently expresses the desire for peace at the heart of Haugens message, "On the day when we beat our swords to plowshares, on the day when we throw the spear no more, on the day when all nations will cast their weapons down, on the day when we turn away from war."

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.
