Mass of Saint Roch - Score Cover

Mass of Saint Roch – Gloria

Free

I composed this Gloria from the Mass of Saint Roch in 2011. It is written for choir SATB and organ, but also includes a SSA version for children voices. Saint Roch is rather popular in the north of Europe and in the city of Cambrai (my diocese) has a church named after this saint.

Biography of Saint Roch
Saint Roch was a French noble, orphaned at 20. Legend claims that he had a red cross birthmark on his chest. He gave all his possessions away and made a pilgrimage to Rome, where he cared for plague victims. When he contracted the disease himself, he retired to a woods to die. It is said that a dog befriended him, brought him bread and licked his wounds. A spring arose where he laid. He recovered and traveled back to France where he was imprisoned as a spy and died. It was then that he was identified as Roch because of the red cross on his chest. He is the Patron Saint of dogs.

Le Seigneur est tendresse et pitié - Psalm 102 - 7th Sunday of Ordinary Time Year C - Score Cover

Le Seigneur est tendresse et pitié – Psalm 102 – OT version

Le Seigneur est tendresse et pitié – Psalm 102 is one of the two versions I recently composed for the national magazine Voix Nouvelles.
One particularity of liturgical year C is that the psalm 102 is used two times, once for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time, the second time for the 3rd Sunday in Lent. The challenge was to set up two relevant musics on the same psalm that would create two different spiritual atmospheres.
Here is the version for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The version for the 3rd Sunday in Lent can be found there.
