Mass of the Angels for the Christmas season

Mary C. WeaverMusic and liturgy, Music for Mass, Parish News

During the Christmas season this year–from December 25 through January 9–we will sing a different setting of the Gloria, the Sanctus (Holy, holy, holy), and the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God). All are English versions of the Latin setting known as Missa de Angelis–the Mass of the Angels.

This Mass was first sung at Holy Ghost during the Christmas season last year.

We will continue to sing the Greek Kyrie we sing now as well as an English setting of Mysterium Fidei (The Mystery of Faith).
