Mass of the Sacred Heart
Timothy R. Smith
Mass of the Sacred Heart be sung in a wide range of assemblies and the end result of all his hard work is an easy-to-learn melody that exhibits both traditional and contemporary qualities, perfect for assemblies of all ages.
One of the exciting additions to this expanded version is the inclusion of two different recordings for several of the Mass parts. The piano/guitar recordings demonstrate the simplicity and beauty of the melody and feature fellow OCP composer Santiago Fernández on the guitar and professional violinist and virtuoso Sonia Lee. The organ/brass versions were recorded in St. Mary's Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, Oregon, and offer a fuller, more traditional sound. The use of the brass instruments rounds out the sound beautifully and displays the full potential of this versatile setting.
