When We Eat This Bread is a lilting arrangement of an irish-style hymn tune. It features a wonderful Eucharistic text that suits Holy Thursday or any communion liturgy. The refrain is printed for the congregation and the use of the cantor. The instrumental and choral writing is very effective in communicating the gift of gathering around the table to share in the holy meal.

With cantor and optional violin, guitar
