This edition provides solo instrument accompaniments and descants for most of the hymns, psalms, songs, and service music in Gather, Fourth Edition. It offers the parish instrumentalist an opportunity to lend instrumental enhancement to the assembly song. The settings have been drawn from many sources including the original composer of the piece along with GIA editors who wrote parts as well.
Gather, Fourth Edition has been intentionally designed to be GIA’s most representative and relevant Catholic hymnal to date.
The musical contents represent the contemporary Catholic church, featuring a culturally diverse roster of composers and a wider breadth of musical styles.
Gather, Fourth Edition is also designed to work seamlessly with various digital assets, making it accessible and relevant in our technology-based world. It is the first hardbound GIA hymnal to be fully coordinated for use with OneLicense, GIA’s Hymnals App, and the new GIA Choral Cloud Subscription.
