Come and See - We Praise You, Lord - In the Cross of Christ - Go in Peace - Rite of Scrutinies: I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say - So You Must Do - Your Love Endures - Stand Firm - At the Dawn of Creation - Up from the Waters - Come and Eat This Bread - At the Table of Christ Jesus - Come and Journey with a Savior - Glory and Praise to You, O God
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.
