O God of Past and Present
Liturgical Music for Choir and Assembly
Twelve fascinating liturgical works in a variety of styles: music for choir and assembly with full orchestration, and three a cappella Latin settings for large choirs.
Fascinating new liturgical works
With this new collection, Michael Joncas gives us 12 fascinating new liturgical works in a variety of styles: music for choir and assembly with full orchestration, and three a cappella Latin settings for large choirs. Listeners will enjoy music for Gathering and Communion, and two settings of texts by Genevieve Glen, OSB.
The first completely new OCP collection
This beautiful, soaring music is the first completely new OCP collection from Joncas, one of the most respected liturgical composers in the United States. A brilliant scholar, theologian, teacher and priest, he has provided something for everyone in recognition of the church's diversity. The songs have a wide array of practical applications, from weekly liturgy to choral anthems to listening music.
Inspire the members of your congregation
These are complex works with rich, engaging harmonies and carefully-chosen texts, especially remarkable on tracks like "God Is Love," "We Gather Here to Worship" and "O God of Past and Present." The "Salve Regina" is a standout track, building an eight-part double-choir piece upon the foundation of the chant.
O God of Past and Present is an indispensable year-round resource for any Catholic choir, and a wonderful new way of inspiring the members of your congregation to sing their faith.
