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.

A toi louange et gloire - Bible Song of Daniel AT40 - Score Cover

A toi louange et gloire – Bible Song of Daniel AT40

I composed A toi louange et gloire – Bible Song of Daniel AT40 in 2000. I was in liturgy class when the organist of the community passed me a paper note to tell me he couldn’t find any music for this bible song for the mass of 18h. So, he asked me if I could compose one quickly. Which I did. During the liturgy class. And here it is. It’s been published in the magazine Voix Nouvelles n°79.
