New Publication: A Caribbean Mass Donald Patriquin
Date: January 28, 2016
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
I am pleased to announce the recent A Tempo publication of A Caribbean Mass written over a three-year period as pro tem organist on the Caribbean island of Carriacou, Grenada. Although written initially for the Anglican “Christ the King” church, it was recently given new life – and movements – in a parish of the United Church of Canada. Included in the Mass setting (in English) are the 3 & 9-fold Kyrie, Gloria, A New Creed, Apostolic Creed, Sanctus & Benedictus and Agnus Dei, along with the Lord’s Prayer, Memorial Acclamation, Great Amen and a number of Amens and Alleluias.
Accompaniment: Keyboard, with highly optional instruments: steel drum, flute, drum set, guitar.
While intended for worship, some movements may be suited to the concert hall.
Kyrie (with steel drum; rehearsal); Sanctus & Benedictus (no steel drum); Lord's Prayer (with steel drum; rehearsal); Christ has Died, Great Amen;
The choral setting and accompaniment for piano are of easy to medium difficulty. No divided parts or solos.
Voicing: SATB or Unison. Style: “Classical Caribbean”.
