MASS OF ST GABRIEL STORY SHEET MUSIC AND MP3 DOWNLOAD
The mass of St Gabriel which I composed is used At St Gabriel in Concord Ohio.It was originally in the key of E and named Mass of Divine Melody then changed to Mass of the Guardian Angel. I was with Marge Syroney at the Fine Arts Association in Willoughby working on the notation when a young lady, who was Marge's next piano student, asked what we were doing. Marge told her I had written a mass and we are in the process of notating it. The student said that her Parish was looking for a Mass to celebrate they're 50th anniversary . I gave a link to my website to her and ST Gabriels music director checked it out, liked it and then asked if I could change the name to Mass of St Gabriel. It seemed meant to be ,and of course I said yes.The mass had been used at St Gabriel, St Cosmas and Damian youth mass and parts of it at Matre Dei Acadamy Grade School.
Since the time of the first edition of the mass the mass has been accepted by the United States Conference of Bishops.The mass has also been renotated by Bob Soeder noted liturgical director and keyboardist at St Monica's in Garfield Hights Ohio. Bob and Mary Hrich, the liturgical minister at Mary Magdalene and Carol Linnsenmeir (viola) have assisted me in a new recording of the Mass, which is available below . There are additions to the original, which includes a traditional Alleluia , a Lenten Gospel Acclamation and also a chanted one There is also a new Gloria and two extra declarations of Faith and also a Penitential rite (Lord have mercy)at the beginning of mass.
