Newly remastered on CD and cassette, now including the "Kyrie" and "Glory to God."
Utilizing text from Scripture, the ICET Mass setting, ICELs Eucharistic Prayer III, Henry Alford, and his own poetry, Marty Haugen has composed an entirely new setting for Eucharist based on the themes and visions of the Lords work of creation. Contents include everything from Song of Gathering to Song of Thankgiving including a musical setting of Eucharistic Prayer III.
The recording features a beautiful rendition of Eucharistic Prayer III sung by Michael Joncas which can be easily learned and performed by any presider, even those with a limited musical background.
The entire Mass may be performed by small ensemble groups with their congregations using either piano or guitar and woodwinds with unison and two part voices utilizing the music collection. SATB choirs with a full complement of organ, brass, handbells, percussion, and woodwinds may perform this inspiring setting with their assemblies utilizing the SATB choral parts.
A valuable resource for every parish regardless of the size or traditions of their musical resources.

Marty Haugen is a liturgical composer from Eagan, Minnesota. For the past fifteen years he has presented workshops across North America, Europe, Australia, and Central America for both Roman Catholic and Protestant liturgical ministers. His communion setting, Now the Feast and Celebration, and his vespers service, Holden Evening Prayer, are well known among Lutheran congregations, while his Mass of Creation is arguably the most widely used musical setting of the Ordinary among English-speaking Roman Catholic parishes. Together with David Haas, he began the popular GIA psalm series, Psalms for the Church Year. Marty has over 250 separate titles published through GIA on more than twenty recorded collections, including such songs as "We Remember," "Shepherd Me, O God," and "Gather Us In." His music appears in numerous GIA hymnals, as well as hymnals produced for Canadian and Australian Roman Catholics, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and numerous other Protestant denominations.
