Composed by Marilena Zlatanou. Contemporary. 21 pages. Marilena Zlatanou #3035601. Published by Marilena Zlatanou (A0.887067).

This composition is built in form as a traditional Mass, but the text used comprises of a selection of only a few words of those usually applied in the traditional Mass movements. The text used, described in detail, is as follows:
1. As Kyrie movement: Only the word ELEISON (Have Mercy On Us)
2. As Gloria movement: Only the word GLORIA (Hail)
3. As Credo movement: Alternative text: Paul’s 1:13 Corinthian (on love)
4. As Sanctus / Benedictus: Only the sentence: PLENI SUNT COELI ET TERRA GLORIA TUA (The Sky and the Earth are full of Thy Glory)
5. As Agnus Dei: Only the sentence DONA NOBIS PACEM (Give Us Peace)

The text selection is a result of the intention to concentrate on the "essence" and the universal character of each movement, without getting into conflict with the dogmatic parts of the original text. This is also the reason for the use of the word alternative in the title. The writing is fairly melodious and tonal, with some contemporary effects.
The individual movements may also be used seperately.
Duration of the whole mass lasts for about 20 minutes.
The individual movements vary from 2 and a half to 7 minutes. The attached mp3 file (of the last movement) is a converted sibelius file.
