Blest Are They

Blest are we who were able to attend a church music concert in neighborhood Fairview, PA this weekend where we heard Marty Haugen and David Haas playing and singing their music, which, along with others of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, helped form the current liturgies of the Catholic Church in the USA. I never even dreamed I would have such an opportunity. It was a "sell out crowd" of 500 strong who sang along with them on nearly every tune. Just wonderful.

I found a concert they did with another great writer of the time and genre, Michael Joncas, on line here. It's an hour and a half, but you can move ahead and stop where you wish. There's a sample at 27:56 min. that will give you a perfect idea of our own live event. WOW! Enjoy.

David Haas, creator of: We Have Been Told, To Be Your Bread, You Are Mine and countless others.
