Trinity Mass

The setting was composed in 2009 following the success of The Mass of St. Thomas.  The structure is  similar containing a strong congregational refrain in the Gloria and a memorable melodic line in the Agnus Dei.  This setting is designed for choirs with an SATB section and with far more interesting part writing than in The Mass of St. Thomas.  Nevertheless, the melody can be easily sung by the congregation alone.    The sound file of the Kyrie can be heard on the RSCM Music Direct site  https://www.rscmshop.com/thorne-trinity-mass-satb-organ.html?___store=german.  The Gloria is available on the link above.  To hear the complete setting performed by the Trinity Boys Choir on the Culver Music website, you will need to ensure Flash is enabled on your device.
