The Church Gathers

Gary Daigle, Marty Haugen

In this first collection of ritual music, Gary and Marty have composed complete musical settings for the gathering rite. The basic melodies are drawn from familiar hymns like "O Come, All Ye Faithful" and "Shepherd Me, O God." From the Sign of the Cross and greeting to the opening prayer, priest, cantor, and assembly engage in a musical dialog that helps reveal the meaning of the rite with integrity. Familiar musical phrases from familiar hymns and songs make the assembly's response so natural they cannot help but sing from the heart.

A full score is available for the director and accompanist as well as separate octavos for each piece for the choir, and an edition for the presider, cantor, and guitarist. The presider's parts may be spoken or sung. Selected instrumental parts are also available. Reprintable assembly parts are included in the full score.

Contents: O Come, All Ye Faithful • Shepherd Me, O God • O Come, O Come, Emmanuel • Advent Gathering • Penitential Litany • Glory to God • Remember Your Love • Gather Us In • Mass of Creation • Jesus Christ Is Risen Today.
