Oliver Tarney
Vocal score
In stock


for SATB (with divisions) and organ or chamber ensemble
This is an uplifting and celebratory setting of the Latin Missa brevis. The choir may be accompanied by organ, chamber ensemble, or a selection of ensemble instruments in combination with organ, opening up several compelling performance options. Four French carol melodies are woven into the music, and performance with glockenspiel and trumpet bring these particularly to the fore. The chosen carol melodies are often associated with hymns from other Church seasons, making the work suitable for performance throughout the year.
