Liam Lawton / Paul A. Tate
- GIA Publications
Liam Lawton -- master of melody -- has penned an alluring Mass setting that fuses the rich tradition of Celtic folk music with a contemporary Irish feel. While featuring lush harmonies for SAB voices, the melody remains the driving force. Tempos range from an upbeat lilt in the Gloria to the more sedate and tender lyricism of the Sanctus and Lamb of God. This sonorous arrangement by Paul Tate, making use of flute and oboe, captures the essence of a resplendent emerald landscape and will be a joy to sing for any congregation.
