Advent Mass settings

In the season of Advent, it is appropriate to use a Mass setting that is well known to the singing assembly but different from the one used in Ordinary Time. Advent is a season of quiet but joyful hope, expectation and penitence: the music is not as exuberant as the music used in the Christmas season. The Mass setting chosen should be used throughout the Advent season. It is preferable to have carol services and nativity plays after 16 December, if possible, to preserve the character of Advent.

In Advent the use of the organ and other musical instruments should be marked by a moderation suited to the character of this time of year, without expressing in anticipation the full joy of the Nativity of the Lord.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §313

Please note that there is no Gloria sung in Advent.

Some suggested settings are:

  • Mass of Our Lady, Help of Christians (Connolly)—CWBII 23a, c, d, e
  • Mass of St Francis (Taylor)—CWBII 22a, c, e, g, h
  • Missa Emmanuel (Proulx)—DD (GIA)

Missa Emmanuel helps parishes to find the ‘sound’ of Advent through the familiar Advent hymn ‘O come, O come Emmanuel’, which also underpins this Mass setting.
