Item Number: S0.204983

This composition is built inform as a traditional Mass, but the text used comprises of a selection of onlya few words of those usually applied in the traditional Mass movements. The text used, described indetail, is as follows:
1. As Kyrie movement: Only the wordELEISON (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 SUNTCOELI ET TERRA GLORIA TUA (The Sky and the Earth are full of Thy Glory)
5. As Agnus Dei: Only the sentence DONA NOBISPACEM (Give Us Peace)

Thetext selection is a result of the intention to concentrate on the “essence” andthe universal character of each movement, without getting into conflict withthe dogmatic parts of the original text. This is also the reason for the use ofthe 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.
