Christ Is Our Peace is a tasty musical fiesta-setting of the communion liturgy by Steve Eulberg.
For 16 years, Eulberg was the Director of Music at the Lutheran Campus Ministry at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. (USA) There he directed a variety of musical ensembles whose talents grace this recording.
“When creating music for worship, I always aim for it to be accessible and energizing, so that the participants can go away singing it throughout the week. The genius of liturgical worship is that people who could not read or write were able to learn the scriptures by what they sang in worship,” Eulberg notes.
This recording features blues, a jazz waltz, an uptown fiesta, acoustic phat, islands, mon!, grunge energy and gentle, confident hope.
On this recording, Eulberg is joined by musicians from the campus ministry and the community: Nate Lichte (bass), Siri Lichte (flute), Katie Stieber (drums), Jonathan Marston, Paul Gerberding & Steve Finestead (percussion choir), Gretchen Arneson & Jeff Reiker (trumpets) and the vocal talents of Connie and Kaitlin Winter-Eulberg, Paul Gerberding, Jonathan Marston and Roxanne Storlie.
