Prepared by the National Centre for Liturgy, in association with the Advisory Committee on Church Music of the Bishops’ Conference of Ireland, this anthology of music for the Irish Church is a resource for all involved in music ministry and for all who gather to celebrate the Eucharist.
In conjunction with the publication of the third edition of the Roman Missal, it includes new settings for the Mass, as well as previously used settings that have been amended in line with the revised translation.
