Music Monday--The New Mass Setting

As my parish, and all English-speaking parishes throughout the world, prepare to implement the new Mass translation, I thought I'd post an example of the new Mass setting for Music Monday.

This one is the Mass of Saint Gregory the Great by Luke Mayernik. Our diocese has asked all parishes to become familiar with this (and one other--the Mass of St. Francis Xavier Cabrini) setting. Our parish won't be using it initially, but may introduce it around Christmas 2012.

The setting I'm planning to use, by the way, is the Sing Praise and Thanksgiving Mass, which isn't on YouTube, so I couldn't share it with you.

Notice the new English translation used here--new words in the Gloria, Holy Holy and  the Memorial Acclaimations.

Here are the new translations for the Gloria, Holy, Holy, and the Memorial Acclaimations with new words in bold.

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.

We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ,
Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
Son of the Father,
you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes
in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

A – We proclaim your death,
O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.

or B – When we eat this Bread
and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your death,
O Lord,
until you come again.

or C – Save us, Savior of the world,
by your Cross
and Resurrection,
you have set us free.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
