Missa 'Cum Jubilo' Fantasia
By Anthony St. Pierre June 2007
 
A A T B
 
 
A frequent source of inspiration for this composer is the repertoire he learned as a choirboy. The Gregorian Missa Cum Jubilo was the genesis for his highly morphed version of this mass setting, from which he has treated the Kyrie, Sanctus & Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. Passages in octaves will require careful attention to tuning and there are some tricky syncopations, but overall an ensemble of moderate skill will find this piece approachable. The last movement (Agnus Dei) may be played with the great bass, in which case, a low D is preferred in the final bar. Duration: 4:00

In the accompanying recording the performers are: Scott Paterson & Anthony St. Pierre, altos; Anne Massicotte, tenor; Takayo Shimoda, bass.
