Mass settings for solemnities

For the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ and the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus, King of the Universe (Christ the King), it is useful to use a Mass setting that is well known to the singing assembly but different to the one used in Ordinary Time. The setting chosen should also match the higher level of solemnity of these days:

Some suggested settings are:

  • Mass of Christ the Redeemer (Kirkpatrick)—CWBII 24
  • Mass of Creation (Haugen)—AOV1 196 (3rd edn), CWBII 69 a, b, c, 74, G 192–204, DD (GIA)
  • For youth: Mass of a Joyful Heart (Angrisano)—DD (OCP)

Mass settings for Ordinary Time

It is useful to change the Mass setting from whatever is used in the Easter season and for solemnities to highlight the change in the liturgical year, while also matching the level of solemnity. A Mass setting that people can sing well and that is sung over time is preferable to changing Mass settings each week. The Mass setting chosen should also be engaging, both melodically and rhythmically, as this invites and sustains interest. Encouraging and supporting people’s participation each week builds the confidence and capacity of the singing assembly. The gospel acclamation returns to ‘Alleluia in Ordinary Time, and the Gloria is sung. See also the ‘Mass Settings’ section in CWBII.

Some suggested settings are:

  • Mass of Glory and Praise (Mason)—CWBII 25
  • Missa Magis (Willcock)—CWBII 26a, b, c, e, g, h
  • Mass of Freedom (Russell)—AOV1 197 (revised 3rd edn only)
  • Gloria only: Mass Shalom (Smith, rev. Mason)—AOV1 195 (revised 3rd edn only), CWBII 27c, DD (Liturgical Song)
  • Gloria only: Belmont Mass (Walker)—CWBII 39
  • For youth: Mass of a Joyful Heart (Angrisano)—DD (OCP)

  • Common Response 1 (praise): Praise the Lord for the Lord is good (Willcock)—PFS 72
  • Common Response 2 (praise): We praise you, O Lord (Willcock)—PFS 74
  • Common Response 3 (praise): Sing to the Lord a new song (Willcock)—PFS 76

Please use the verse appropriate to the day. It is preferable to use one acclamation throughout the whole season to support confident participation by the assembly.

Notes on seasonal psalms, common responsorial psalms and common responses

Seasonal psalms, common responsorial psalms and common responses are a resource for communities who wish to sing the responsorial psalm but find they cannot learn new music each week. These settings can be sung over some weeks: seasonal and common responsorial psalms are sung as they are written, and common responses allow for the use of a common antiphon while using the psalm verses set for each week in the Lectionary. Over time, by using the psalms suggested, a community can gradually build its repertoire and ensure that the sung responsorial psalm remains a regular part of the Liturgy of the Word.

Suggested gospel acclamations

  • Alleluia from Mass of a Joyful Heart (Angrisano)—DD (OCP)
  • Alleluia from Mass Shalom—CWBII 27d, DD (AOV or Liturgical Song)
  • Alleluiatic Psalm Tone—CWBII 47
  • Celtic Alleluia—AOV1 13, CWBII 48, GA 141
  • Hallel Alleluia—CWBII 49
  • Mawby Alleluia—CWBII 51
  • Murray Alleluia—CWBII 52

Suggested entrance and Communion antiphon collection

  • Saint Meinrad Entrance and Communion Antiphons (Columba Kelly OSB)—DD (OCP)

Solo singing or instrumentals

The procession of the gifts or offertory is an appropriate time for an appropriate solo piece, from either a solo singer or the choir. This piece may replace a communal hymn or song at this time.

After Communion

The GIRM (§88) instructs that when the distribution of Communion is finished, there is a time of silence and prayer. This period of silence may then be followed by a thanksgiving hymn, psalm or canticle that is to be sung by all.
