EVENING MASS

Part of my larger Evening Mass. A soloist introduces the congregational melody, which is easily learned without written music (although a written congregational insert is included here). Whether or not your church uses the traditional parts of the mass, this piece serves as a soulful cry asking for God's mercy-- I've used the piece in "liturgical" and "non-liturgical" settings, with great response. Recorded on From This Place.

O, the Deep, Deep Love
O, the Deep, Deep Love
The hymn tune of O, the Deep, Deep Love (commonly known in hymnal indexes as Ebenezer, or Ton-y-Botel) was written by Welsh composer Thomas J. Williams in 1890. Though several different texts have been set to Williams’ tune, the one that informed my arrangement was written in 1875 by Samuel Francis. Francis’ text speaks of the love of God as an ocean that is all around us, free and deep and always moving. Recorded on From This Place.
