Mass of the Archangel
music for the Proper of the Mass is in two versions (really two separate
Masses), Mass of the Archangel and Maranatha Mass. Each was named
for her previously written music on which she based the Gloria. That of Mass
of the Archangel is based on a litany in Gaelic to our Lord as King of
Angels, and that of Maranatha Mass is based on the song “Maranatha!”
which appears in Angel-Chief of Many Names.
music is in lead-sheet form with words, melodies, and chord symbols; it was
written for the harp but may be played on any instrument. Each Mass includes:
Glory to God; Gospel Acclamation (Alleluia); Holy; Memorial Acclamations A, B,
C, and D; Great Amen; and Lamb of God.
these Masses may be printed free on this website, or we will print and send
them in a loose-leaf binder (price: $20) or email you a free copy in Coda Music
Notation format, which can be read with the Coda Music Viewer, or Adobe Acrobat
format, which can be read with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Both forms print very
well, and the Coda Music Notation music can also be heard.
