PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- To help church leaders prepare their communities for the new English translation of the Roman Missal, OCP has given free download access, including unlimited reprint permissions, for assembly editions of every new and revised Mass setting the publisher offers.
"This access provides parish leaders a unique chance to teach their congregations the new and revised Mass parts," said Tom Tomaszek, OCP's Director of Artists and Repertoire and Product Development. "By offering assembly editions of the revised Order of Mass for download, free of charge, we can aid our partners in ministry in implementing these changes smoothly."
The downloadable assembly editions contain the lyrics and melodies for all the Mass parts in a single, easy to read PDF for each of the new and revised settings. Although the changes to the Roman Missal cannot be used during Mass until Advent 2011, these assembly editions give congregations everywhere the ability to learn and sing the new texts -- one year in advance.
"We want to encourage church leaders to take advantage of this opportunity to explore the changes and ultimately find Mass settings in styles that work well with each of their assemblies and musicians," said Tomaszek.
