Music Notes

LEVAS 154: Taste and See

This contemporary hymn was written by James E. Moore (b. 1951), who also wrote a setting for the Advent text, “Prepare the Way of the Lord.” A liturgical musician, composer, and consultant, Dr. Moore served various churches in Ohio before moving to Vienna. The words are drawn from Psalm 34, arranged in verses with a simple refrain; at the Eucharist, this text connects the bread and wine of the liturgy to our daily bread, and so draws us to receive all forms of God’s nourishment. - Donna Wessel Walker
