Setting of movements from Catholic Mass (E)
Choral level of difficulty: 1 (5 greatest)
This is a simple setting that a congregation could be taught quickly and easily. The work consists only of the Kyrie, Sanctus and Benedictus (together), Acclamation and Agnus Dei. The ever-practical MacMillan has even included a transposition of the organ parts in case people find it too high. The Sanctus and Benedictus and the Acclamation (which has the same melody) have a very Scottish traditional feel to the melody including a Scotch Snap.
