Alan's texts have appeared in worship resources for many years. Song of the Spirit: Texts for Sung Prayer gathers many of Alan's hymn texts into one collection. Many of these texts can be sung to familiar tunes in your parish's repertoire. In this collection you'll find the familiar tunes as well as new and inspired musical settings. This is a prayerful compilation, appropriate for use during all the seasons and rituals of Christian life.
"Hommerding's texts are generally very well-crafted, with clear and concise language and a fine sensitivity for rhythm and meter.  In terms of both music and text, Hommerding's Song of the Spirit is a most welcome addition to the hymn repertoire.  One can easily concur with Michael Joncas, who contributed a "Foreword" to the publication which includes the following observation: "In an age when liturgical composers sometimes emulate rock stars and liturgical compositions are marketed like the latest products of Detroit showrooms, it is refreshing to experience a humble craftsman, more interested in sustaining people's prayer than in gaining the applause of the crowd."—Vincent A Lenti, The Hymn, April 2003
