Mass of St. Mary Magdalene
by Jared Tomlinson
SATB a cappella and with piano/organ $3.60 CP 1292 – 6:00
The Mass of St. Mary Magdalene was the winning entry in Toronto’s historic Church of St. Mary Magdalene’s competition for a new choral setting of the Mass, held in celebration of their 125th anniversary. Jared’s writing shows the influence of Healey Willan and Stephanie Martin (both were music ministers at St. Mary Magdalene) – with long lyrical undulating phrases. With five short movements, this beautiful and functional Mass can be easily learned and presented by skilled amateur choirs in the sanctuary or the concert hall.
