The Mass of St. Patrick, was commissioned for the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the founding of Ballintubber Abbey, famously known as the abbey that “refused to die.” As with so many of Liam Lawton’s compositions, his gift for melody grows out of the rich, lyric music tradition of his native Ireland.  Unmistakably Celtic in style, the the mass features simple harmonic textures which are enhanced by a C Instrument part woven throughout. The mass is set primarily in D major, making it accessible for Irish traditional instruments. The Mass of St. Patrick is a pleasing setting that your congregation will enjoy singing.
