Our work on the Rejoice and Sing volume 3 mass settings project is slowly drawing to a close. It has truly been a labour of love these past few months – especially for Mike Stanley who’s been overseeing the project working from home while also being on long-term sick leave.
We are pleased to announce that the audio CD was released on 31 December 2011 and those who ordered in advance would have received their package of audio delight only in the New Year. The feedback we’ve received so far has been really very positive.
“[the CD] … was on the doormat when I arrived home from school
this evening – and is so beautiful – very moving and uplifting –
I can’t wait to get everyone working on a new setting!” ~ Jon
One of the exciting things about the recording is that it features the vocal talents of priests from our diocese – including our Archbishop Bernard Longley. For each mass setting one of the priests sings and/or speaks the part of the Presider, which helps the listener understand exactly how each setting works within the context of the Mass.
Work continues on the Digital Songbook CD-ROM and we’re hoping that this will be available for release in the next few weeks. Meanwhile you can still place an ADVANCE ORDER and save £4 off post-release retail price.
These settings are also now available in a Virtual Songbook format, so you can access them from anywhere from your computer or mobile. For more information about this and other offerings from our Liturgy Box, click here.
