First published in 1991, "You Are Mine" is one of the most popular contemporary liturgical songs used in the Church today. It consistently appears at the top of "favorite liturgical song" lists and surveys and is heard in parishes around the world. In this episode, composer David Haas speaks with Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert to break open the song, sharing the origins and intentions behind the piece. Topics discussed include the emotional connections to liturgical music, singing text set in the voice of God, and what it means to "let a song go" when it has found a life of its own. David is joined by friend and composer Kate Cuddy. If you feel a connection to this beautiful piece, it will be deepened after you listen to this episode.
So, please open your hymnal to "You Are Mine."
