"Of the settings reviewed here, David Ashley White’s Mass for a Celebration is the only one in English and designed for congregational participation. This Rite II collection includes responses to the Decalogue and memorial acclamations for prayers A, B, and D in addition to the more typical movements. The entirely unison vocal line flows effortlessly, always supported by the accompaniment. The optional brass would heighten the festivity, but their inclusion is not necessary for effective performance. Congregations who have a desire for alternatives to the settings in The Hymnal 1982 would welcome these accessible, melodious pieces." --AAM Journal, March 2013
A very accessible mass setting for your congregation, and you do not even need to purchase either a score and parts or congregational card. It is all free right here for download as a PDF (though you may purchase printed copies of the full score or congregational part if you wish). Full score includes reproducible congregational parts and instrumental parts may be downloaded.
To use with your congregation, just contact Selah for a license to reprint in your bulletin, or use your OneLicense.net, CCLI, or LicenSing license to freely use and reproduce the movements of this mass.
