A worthy successor to Mass of Joy and Peace—Tony Alonso’s bestselling setting—Mass of Christ, Light of the Nations is a compelling stylistic contrast that demonstrates his continued commitment to well-crafted ritual music that inspires the participation of the liturgical assembly.
Mass of Christ, Light of the Nations offers two compelling versions of the Gloria—one in a verse/ refrain style and one through-composed. Both set a celebratory tone that will engage and gratify your assembly. The strong musical lines, repeating melodic themes, and comfortable singing ranges throughout will enable your community to learn this setting with ease.
Scored for SAB choir and descant, two C instruments, trumpet, cello, piano or organ and guitar, Mass of Christ, Light of the Nations offers a wide variety of texture possibilities and is an effective setting for any ensemble. It will quickly become a favorite that you return to continually throughout the liturgical year.
