The Mass of Faith
The Savior of the World
I started working on The Mass of Faith back in 2009. When the text changed in the Mass, I had to make some changes to fit the new mass setting. I never heard the 3rd acclamation so I wrote an entire piece around it.
When ever I compose music for the church, I try and write flowing melodies that are easy to pick up, easy for the choir and congregation to learn and remember, and simple enough for folks who love to play and sing music give back to God what God gives them. Besides our love for the Lord and the church, this is the driving force of inspiration we feel when we as Ministers of Music are given the opportunity to provide our church with the musical blessing God gave us.
I hope you do use The Mass of Faith at your church. I know you and your congregation will love it. Here is what The Mass of Faith contains.
