5x5 inches. Robert Ray.

For centuries, the world's great composers have set the Ordinary of the Mass in a wide variety of styles. Ray has surrounded these texts with the joyous styles of contemporary African-American music. All six movements work well as individual anthems, but collectively they form a truly powerful performance experience. Available separately: SATB, ShowTrax CD (w/Rhythm Section) and Score/Parts for Full Orchestra.

  • November 14, 2008 Very good follow up to He Never Failed Me Yet

    My choirs and I had a great experience with Robert Ray's "He Never Failed Me Yet" so I was intriqued by this work. It is quite enjoyable and up to his usual standard. I don't know what it would be like to perform the entire work (we are...

    only doing the Credo). It does seem that it would get a little repetitious. A couple of the movement (such as the Credo) work very well as stand alone pieces. (It is a shame they are not published as separate otavos.) Be sure to check out the CD recording. It will give you ideas for additional "ad lib" Gospel solos and other stylistic things not notated in the music.

    We sang this music in high school. I attended Ouachita Parish High School under the instruction of John Ethel Minifield. I thought this was the best thing ever composted. I still love it. I have a recording of my choir singing it and it still brings tears to my eyes...

    when I hear it. It was a very good time in my life and singing the Gospel Mass helps me to remember that. This piece is totally worth learning. It is unforgetable.

  • October 09, 2001 Wonderful Movement

    I was in a choral ensemble in college. This was the piece we sung and I have never forgotten it. It was very moving and uplifting. My husband sings with a chorus and I feel that this is a work they should try.
