How Sweet the Moonlight Sleeps

How sweet the moonlight sleeps, 
sleeps upon this bank!
Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music, 
music creep in our ears.

Irish Blessing

by Jared Tomlinson

SAB with piano – KH 055   – duration 3:35
May the road rise to meet you,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.

Mass of St. Mary Magdalene

by Jared Tomlinson

SATB a cappella and with piano/organ – CP 1292   – duration 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.

Kyrie – a cappella four parts    – 1:30 
Gloria – unison with piano or organ    – :40 (optional congregational)
Credo – unison with piano or organ    – :40 (optional congregational)
Sanctus and Benedictus – a cappella four parts    – 1:40
Agnus Dei – a cappella four parts    – 1:20
