New Christmas Sacred
Herself a Rose, Who Bore the Rose.....TC-296.....$2.25
Eleanor Daley Preview
Christina Rossetti’s poem extolls Mary, the mother of Jesus, exploring in images from nature the paradox of a divine, yet helpless, infant born to a human mother: “The Sun of Righteousness her Son, she was His morning star.” Eleanor Daley’s setting combines rich harmonies with a mood of hushed awe, in textures which sensitively move from unison to two-part passages, then open out to four-part harmony.
SSAA a cappella; English. Medium.
Christus natus est (Today Christ Is Born).....TC-299.....$1.70
Laster, James H. Preview
A Christmas plainchant (familiar from Britten’s Ceremony of Carols) appears with a new organ accompaniment in this stirring setting. Chant sections alternate with strongly rhythmic, antiphonal organ/choir passages. A fine Christmas processional or concert opener. SSA and Organ; Latin; Easy-Medium.
New Other Sacred
Exultant rhythms and meter changes proclaim the joy of Easter in this new setting of the “Christ is erstanden” text. It is short, and it bursts with energy—the perfect Introit or Gospel procession for your principal service on Easter Day. Brass parts are available in dual versions, for flexible use: 2 Trumpets in C/ B-flat, Horn/Trombone, and Trombone.
Unison; Keyboard or Brass quartet; English. Easy.
Gloria in excelsis! A new easy Mass setting you can sing in church--and elsewhere. This Missa Brevis from 1877 was dedicated to the Congrégation des Dames auxiliatrices de l’Immaculée Conception. Founded in 1858, by 1880 the order’s mother house in Paris had 72 members, and maintained an orphanage for 90 children and a 30-bed hospital. This Missa Brevis would have made a fine, practical setting for the sisters to sing at High Mass, and perhaps for the orphans to sing as well. The movements are just the right length to work well during the liturgy, and simple enough to learn quickly and remember easily. Although very easy, they carry their text well, and benefit from careful dynamic shaping by experienced choirs. Individual movements may also be sung as free-standing church anthems, or as concert pieces. We are happy to provide the entire Mass in octavo form, or to negotiate print licenses for individual movements—email firstname.lastname@example.org for a fee schedule and a permission form, and we’ll send you a downloadable file.
SA and Organ or Harmonium; Latin. Easy.

Tillen, Paula Foley Preview
The poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson expresses the Transcendental truth that inspiration—sky-born music—shines through all of nature, even the lowest, un-pretty parts. The composer’s soaring melody perfectly expresses the joy of the text. Good for when you need a “spiritual but not religious” piece for non-sectarian use. SSAA Chorus, Soprano Solo, and Piano; English; Medium.
