  • David Haas Table Songs is indeed a welcome contribution to the repertoire of todays pastoral musician. These songs are not just "communion songs" as we know them, but rather songs designed to accompany the communal action of the moment. The personal piety of the individual has been set aside in this collection. Instead, youll find songs with refrains which are easily memorized so that the entire community may join together in song at the Lords supper. The eighteen titles include communion songs for general use as well as selections for specific seasons and feasts. Were certain this collection will be considered one of the more useful items in your music library.
