12 accessible new songs for the entire year
The late Monsignor Taulé believed that every parish should have a dynamic, evolving repertoire. As pastor at the oldest church in Barcelona, he knew from experience that quality music and the regular introduction of new songs are vital to the spiritual health of a parish. Día de Fiesta gives Spanish-speaking assemblies 12 solid, accessible new songs for every season of the year.

Music for entrance and Communion processions
In preparing this new collection, Father Taulé made it his specific aim to provide new texts and melodies for Mass on Sunday -- el día del Señor, the day of celebration. From there, he narrowed his focus to two particular moments in the liturgy: the entrance procession and Communion.

Entrance hymns for every season
Preceding even the sign of the cross, the gathering song makes a powerful first impression. It sets the tone for the entire liturgy, anticipating themes in the readings and drawing the assembly together en el nombre del Señor. The collection includes one entrance hymn each for Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter, and two for Ordinary Time.

Communion songs with easily memorized responses
Composed to inspire pious listening and meditation, the six songs for Communion feature short, easily memorized responses. Multiple verses, arranged for soloist and small choir, allow for longer processions. All 12 songs use Scripture-based texts for the entrance and Communion antiphons.

Expands the repertoire of Hispanic parishes
As Father Taulé explains in the songbooks generous performance notes, there is danger in a static repertoire. Sung too often for too long, music can lose its impact. Día de Fiesta is a wonderful solution for Hispanic parishes, expanding the repertoire for the beginning and heart of the liturgy.

Note: A long-time, beloved member of the OCP family, Alberto passed away in March 2007, shortly after finishing this, his last collection of liturgical music. May he rest in peace.
