Known for his wonderfully accessible writing for choral ensembles, Father O'Brien produces another excellent collection with Maker of Heaven and Earth. From the joyfulness of weddings to the solemn reflection of Good Friday, this inspired new collection is filled with liturgically sound pieces for cantor, choir, and assembly. "Faith, Hope, and Love" puts a lovely melody to the I Corinthians Scripture and can be performed by choir or as a solo. For Holy Week, "Tree of Life and Glory" and "This Is My Example" are ideal for the Mass of the Lord's Supper, while O'Brien's setting of Psalm 22, "My God, My God" and "Hosanna" are perfect for Passion (Palm) Sunday and Good Friday.
Includes one each of the following octavos:
This Is My Example - Faith, Hope, and Love - My God, My God (Ps 22) - Our Help Is from the Lord (Ps 121) - Spirit of the Living God - The Servant Song GILLIARD - Tree of Life and Glory - Mercy, O God - Go Forth in Peace - Hosanna! - The Table of God: Fraction Rite and Communion Song - No Greater Love - Awake, O Sleeper - See, I Make All Things New - The Glory of the Lord (Ps 85) and To You, I Lift My Soul (Ps 25)
