Ecumenical Songs for Justice and Peace

Edited by: Andrew Donaldson

Perhaps the greatest treasure of the Christian ecumenical movement lies in its gatherings of songs, prayers, and other liturgical resources from around the world. Now, adding to this wealth, 70 songs are presented in this book. Inspired by the World Council of Churches' 10th Assembly, these songs - of praise, adoration, struggle, mission, faith, and hope - constitute a deep resource for the pilgrimage of justice and peace. They are published in English, French, Spanish, and German, as well as other languages, and are augmented by recorded performances available on YouTube. The collection includes contributions by noted international composers, such as: Unsu Kang, Geonyong Lee, Ryu Hyung Sun (Korea) * Simei Monteiro and Rodolfo Gaede Neto (Brazil) * Francisco Feliciano (Philippines) * Linnea Good, Tom Witt, Douglas Romanow (US/Canada). Songs from many traditions are represented, including the Orthodox traditions from Armenia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, and Russia. [Subject: Religious Studies, Christianity, Ecumenism, Musicology]
