“I wanted this setting to be flexible enough to accommodate many worship settings… whether it be a small chapel or a spacious cathedral” —Dan Schutte
Enter more deeply into the mystery of Christ
Featuring beautiful melodies that will quickly become like old friends, Mass of Christ the Savior invites us to enter more deeply into the mystery of Christ each time we celebrate Mass. The arrangement lends itself to a single singer and guitar or SAB choir, organ and added instruments. Containing updated texts for the Lamb of God, the expanded edition of this widely used setting offers a masterful wedding of music and text to inspire your parish.
Discover a variety of expanded material
“Living Streams,” easily learned by the assembly for the Sprinkling Rite, builds with intensity each time it’s sung. In addition to the original Glory to God with refrain, Dan includes a new through-composed option. The elegant Universal Prayer is an accessible way to sing the Prayers of the Faithful each Sunday or for special celebrations during the year. Eucharistic Prayer II gives presiders a melodic chant setting for the summit of the liturgy.
Enjoy musical settings for every Dialogue
In Sing to the Lord, the U.S. bishops’ instructions to liturgical musicians state that “Dialogues and Acclamations” are given the highest priority in the sung part of the liturgy. From the Introductory Dialogue to the Final Blessing and Dismissal, this expanded edition provides settings for each dialogue, creating a more engaging interaction between the priest and congregation to encourage full, conscious and active participation.
Now featuring a Spanish Bilingual Setting
Enlisting the musical and language skills of composer Jaime Cortez, Mass of Christ the Savior has been expanded to include a fully bilingual version for mixed communities and those large diocesan celebrations where such a setting allows a community to embrace their cultural diversity.
