What is the written tune for We Walk by Faith? The Marty Haugen tune?

I actually don't mind that one, when you compare it to his other "masterpieces".

The text actually goes back to the 19th century - Henry Alford. The tune Haugen wrote is called SHANTI, and was his finale to Massive Cremation.

Nick and I were discussing "We walk by faith" in another board - he's using New Britain at the Cathedral, as that's the tune he was used to at his former parish in Illinois. He had mentioned DUNLAP'S CREEK, which is in Worship III, and I had mentioned my partiality to ST. BOTOLPH, which is the tune used in the Collegeville Hymnal, and (as Nick mentioned) in Hymnal 1982 (Episcopal, USA).

This text was set to ST. ANNE in earlier versions of LitPress' "Celebrating the Eucharist" missalette. I chose that one since my congregation can do "O God, our help in ages past" so well. ;)

Funny, when I look at Massive Cremation, his finale seems so odd. The Mass is in G minor and the "closing hymn" is in A major (B-flat might have been better, and the top note in the melody is still only a D).

Hope you had a wonderful blessed Easter.

DUNLAP'S CREEK is also in the Lutheran supplement "With One Voice", which is where I first ran across it.
