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 for a fee schedule and a permission form, and we'll send you a downloadable file. Instrumentation: SA, organ or harmonium
