With songs that paint both stately majesty and pastoral elegance, God of All Beginnings is a new collec-
tion of exceptional liturgical music from Michael Joncas. “A Time of Jubilee” and the title track “Praise
the God of All Beginnings” have all the dignity and grandeur necessary for a solemn procession while the
sweet tenderness of “Holy Mary, Full of Grace” provides a wonderful alternative to your usual Marian
repertoire. “The Goodness of the Lord: Psalm 89 for the Chrism Mass” possesses rich harmonic texture,
and the lush orchestration of “Sacred This Banquet,” illuminates this glorious Kwatera communion text.
Practical ranges, singable melodies, and superior choral writing make this collection extremely versatile. There is something in this collection for
every choir and congregation.
