Mass of Courage

This congregational setting of the mass for catholic congregational participation, “Mass of Courage,” is a sort of companion to “Mass of Joy.” Many rhythms and melodies are similar between the two, except “Mass of Courage” is in B minor, while “Mass of Joy.” is in D major. The similarities may help the congregation in participation and give a little continuity as you change from one mass setting to another.
