Christmas Carol Mass
Beyond Angels We Have Heard On High!
This congregational setting of the mass for the catholic church uses the melodies from:
- God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,
- Angels We Have Heard On High,
- Adeste Fidelis (O Come All Ye Faithful),
- While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night,
- O Little Town Of Bethlehem,
- Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,
- Joy To The World,
- Once In Royal David’s City,
- Infant Holy Infant Lowly,
- Good Christian Friends Rejoice,
- Silent Night
- and even the Hallelujah Chorus!
Encourage participation with familiar music. Many options are given (so you don’t need to use the Hallelujah Chorus for the gospel acclamation if you would rather save it for Easter, for example). “Glory To God” may be sung straight through without the “Gloria in excelsis Deo” refrain.
Parts included are:
- Piano/organ accompaniment,
- Lead sheet for contemporary ensemble
- Tablet/Phone version for Cantors
