Matt Reichert, David Haas, and Zack Stachowski (2019 LA Religious Education Congress)

It’s another OYH composer “repeat!” Last time, co-hosts Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert spoke with David Haas about his song, “You Are Mine,” his most-requested liturgical composition. Now they speak with him about his first published liturgical song, “We Have Been Told.” You’ll also hear about the beginnings of David’s collaboration with Marty Haugen and Fr. Michael Joncas, the compositional challenges and opportunities presented by the Gospel of John, and a surprise story about one of his most-beloved Psalm settings.

So, please open your hymnal to "We Have Been Told"!
