Check out the rich variety of new and revised settings available from GIA.


Mass in Honor of St. Ignatius  G-8236
Russell Weismann


image In the style of plainsong, the Mass in Honor of St. Ignatius can be sung unaccompanied or with organ. This simple, chant-style setting of the Revised Order of Mass named after Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus employs simple melodic motifs that repeat throughout making it both appealing and singable. The choral parts embellish the piece lending a contemporary effect to the monodic melody.

Come and Go with Me  G-8346
Kenneth Louis


image For SATB, cantor, piano, and assembly this new Mass by Kenneth Louis is exactly the kind of uplifting gospel praise that adds a festive dimension to your worship celebrations. Quick, syncopated rhythms and joyful melodies infused throughout capture both the ear and the heart inviting your assembly to lift their voices in glory.

Welcome Table  G-8225
M. Roger Holland II / Kim Harris


imageWelcome Table Based on the familiar melodies of beloved spirituals from African American history, Welcome Table is an instantly singable Mass that is sure to elicit great joy. Each spiritual was carefully selected and paired to each Mass part in order to fully portray their depth of meaning and purpose. Some of the familiar titles included are "My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord," "Ride On, King Jesus," "Give Me Jesus," and "Old Time Religion." This is feel-good singing at its finest.

Storrington Mass  G-7696
Marty Haugen


image Commissioned by the Catholic Parish of Our Lady of England in Storrington, Haugen's versatile Storrington Mass displays striking contrasts—with other Mass settings but also within its own pages. Storrington Mass has everything we've come to expect from this master composer. Although comparatively more subdued and more lilting than some Masses, the use of the full complement of forces (including brass quartet and timpani) can make for a majestic and festive liturgy.

The Sound of My People  G-7748
M. Roger Holland II


imageThe Sound of My People utilizes various gospel styles from deep within the African American tradition of Christian worship. We predict that this will be the premier new setting for African American communities from coast to coast—especially for more festive occasions. Scored for congregation, SATB choir, and piano, the music is a bit challenging but tremendously rewarding.

Mass for a New World  G-7803
David Haas


imageFor an assembly-friendly, easy-to-learn, and joyful Mass setting, look no further! The repeated, gospel-style themes are memorable and uplifting. Scored for SATB voices, a vocal descant is also provided. This will be the Mass you return to throughout the year, no matter the season.

Unity Mass  G-7808
Norah Duncan IV


imageMusical genres abound in this eclectic Mass setting from Norah Duncan, IV. From the calypso feel of the Gloria to the early American character of the Gospel Acclamation to the gentle lyricism of the Lamb of God, this variety of styles comes together beautifully into an inspiring setting that has the power to unite the most diverse assembly.

Mass of Joy and Peace  G-7813
Tony Alonso


imageReminiscent of a theme and variations, the suitably titled Mass of Joy and Peace weaves together gentle melodic motifs and jubilant, lilting rhythmic patterns eliciting a sense of quiet joy and blissful peace. The use of repeated passages ensures ease of learning and quick retention for your assembly, while the comfortable ranges of the three-part voicing (SAB) make this a great choice for smaller choirs and ensembles. The graceful string and woodwind arrangements overlay a delicate beauty, further enhancing this delightful and memorable liturgical setting.

Mass for a Servant Church  G-7851
Michel Guimont


imageThe Mass for a Servant Church achieves a rare balance: it is easily accessible for the assembly, it is magnificent with cantor and organ alone, and it can be further enhanced with the addition of choral harmonies, brass quartet and timpani for more festive celebrations. Guimont’s creative melodic and harmonic writing ensures that the setting will remain fresh after years of use.

Mass of Plenty  G-7859
Rob Glover


imageThe infectious joy of the spiritual “Plenty Good Room” permeates this Mass setting. While the choir parts are rich and rewarding, the assembly parts are quickly learned and easily retained. The writing is upbeat and contains a lot of syncopation. There is a dramatic quality to this piece that will invite everyone to “choose your seat and sit down.”

Mass from Age to Age  G-7860
Chris de Silva


imageMass from Age to Age is an apt title for this setting. It has a contemporary sound and interesting harmonies, while including some Greek and Latin texts of the Mass in addition to the 2010 English revision. Supported by an idiomatic piano accompaniment, Chris de Silva’s solid choral writing is accessible to singers of all levels. Participation in this Mass will prove to be uplifting for all!

Black Mountain Liturgy  G-7861
Sally Ann Morris


imageMontreat, North Carolina, a deeply spiritual place for many Christians, is nestled on the land that is the namesake for Black Mountain Liturgy. Sally Ann Morris has captured the warm and comfortable feeling of that region in her harmonically rich, dance-like writing. The SATB voicing and descant combine with a sturdy accompaniment to create a satisfying feeling of home.

The Glendalough Mass  G-7862
Liam Lawton, Arranged by Paul A. Tate


imageLiam Lawton—master of melody—has penned an alluring Mass setting that fuses the rich tradition of Celtic folk music with a contemporary Irish feel. While featuring lush harmonies for SAB voices, the melody remains the driving force. Tempos range from an upbeat lilt in the Gloria to the more sedate and tender lyricism of the Sanctus and Lamb of God. This sonorous arrangement by Paul Tate, making use of flute and oboe, captures the essence of a resplendent emerald landscape and will be a joy to sing for any congregation.

Missa Ad Gentes:
Maryknoll Centennial Mass

Michael Joncas


imageMissa ad Gentes was commissioned by the Maryknoll Community to celebrate their centenary. One of the most intriguing features of this setting is that the various movements musically represent both Maryknoll's United States heritage and the diverse cultures in which Maryknoll missioners serve. Some of the cultural influences represented include Portuguese, Hispanic, Russian, and Asian. The Eucharistic Acclamations can be done with organ, brass quintet, and timpani, intensifying an already sumptuous setting.

"It is my hope that the Missa ad Gentes will assist English-speaking Roman Rite Catholics to worship with new liturgical texts, faithful to their heritage, but enriched by the great diversity of languages and cultures that make up the Church Catholic." —Michael Joncas

Misa Una Santa Fe/One Holy Faith Mass  G-7853
Ronald F. Krisman


imageMisa Una Santa Fe/One Holy Faith Mass offers a multitude of performance options, making this fully bilingual setting perfect for any parish. This comprehensive Mass contains every acclamation you'll need for the liturgical year plus additional verses for the Gospel Acclamations (including Lent), bilingual intercessions, the Preface dialogue, every form of the Memorial Acclamation, and a sung setting of the Our Father. And everything can be sung in Spanish, English, or any combination of the two. This setting works well with an ensemble of piano, guitars, and optional percussion, but also with organ. The use of brass quartet and timpani will enhance the Eucharistic Acclamations and add a festive dimension to this thoroughly appealing Mass setting.
