GO BEFORE US by Bernadette Farrell ($16.95)

OCP: 11913

2003 Unity Award Winner: Choral Collection of the Year

Like Bernadette's previous collections, Go Before Us expresses a commitment to social justice, inviting Jesus to go before and guide us to live in ways that bring peace to the world. Containing psalm settings, songs suitable for children and music for use in the liturgy throughout the year, Go Before Us features 13 original songs arranged for organ, piano, guitar, flute, strings and brass.

Go Before Us features three songs with texts by New Zealand poet Shirley Erena Murray. Bernadette wrote "Christ Beside Us" for the bicentennial celebration of the Ursiline Sisters of Jesus. Like Share the Light, this new collection welcomes participation by the hearing impaired by providing sign-language instructions for three songs.

Bernadette dedicated the title song to Jackie Birch (1965-2002), a school teacher and close friend of Bernadette's who died unexpectedly. Appropriate for funerals and other occasions when we pray for God's comfort and healing, "Go Before Us" is a soothing, hopeful song asking Jesus to "show us the way to our one true home."
