A fresh and energetic setting of the Mass for piano/keyboard, guitar and instruments.
Penitential Act: Metrical invocations for the priest or cantor with a Kyrie / Christe response. The invocations are flexible and can be altered or spoken.
Glory to God: a simple refrain with three verses. The verses may be sung by a competent congregation too. If you have a percussionist, let them loose on this piece!
Eucharistic Acclamations: The Holy Holy Holy, Mystery of Faith and Amen all share a common theme, making them easy to learn.
Lamb of God: A relaxed setting with a gentle swing. If your pianist can play in a jazz style, let them improvise on the piano part.
This work is published with the approval of the Department for Christian Life and Worship of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

In preparation: Instrumental edition and MP3 backing tracks for practice or accompaniment
