“In This Eucharist” is a strophic hymn written for Cantor, SATB Choir and Piano. The vocal range of the melody, as well as the choral parts, make it incredibly accessible to cantors as well as the congregation.
The inspiration for “In This Eucharist” comes from the rich traditions of scripture that bring together the sacrament of the Eucharist and our call to work towards a church and society that is unified through the rich and beautiful diversity of all of its members. Using three scripture passages as a springboard, “In This Eucharist” speaks to how our Lord welcomes us to the table, feeds us with his Body and Blood and then sends us forth to bring love to our world. Music Directors will have plenty of flexibility in performance options. It can be used simply with a cantor and piano as a Communion hymn or reflection or used as a choral anthem on any feast day that emphasizes the Eucharist and unity.
