Composer TIETZE, CHRISTOPH
Voicing/Instrument UNIS SAC COLL
Publisher WORLD LIBRARY OF SACRED MUSIC
WLP is proud to showcase a sample of this new work by Christoph Tietze, whose Introit Hymns collection has enabled many parishes to sing the Church's antiphons and psalms from the Graduale Simplex in the vernacular. Here Christoph turns his attention to the Communion rite. To facilitate assembly participation and underscore the unity of the season, the music is identical for each Sunday. The texts are the Communion antiphons and psalms from the Graduale Romanun. The refrain and verse offer different key relationships, providing refreshing contrast yet moving effortlessly from one tonal center to the other.
