Dorian Mass (V.108)

The idea behind these three masses (Vv 108, 109, and 110) is to create
complete settings of the Roman Catholic Mass, in latin, for SATB choir, including optional parts for congregation and priest. Each mass also uses specific instruments to augment the choir.

The masses will take their basic harmonic language from old church modes, namely Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian, but be cast in a contemporary style, retaining an accessability and aesthetic attractiveness for lay audiences. They are intended to be pieces which could be learned by the average church choir, and conceivable given in their entirety during mass. They are also designed with the flexibility to excerpt parts and shorten sections.

They are not concert works but are intended for real church use, and give churches of varying size (and adventurousness) many options for their performance.
