Mass of Saint Roch - Score Cover

Mass of Saint Roch – Alleluia

Free

I composed this Alleluia from the Mass of Saint Roch in 2009. 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.

Rorate Cæli Desuper - Score Cover

Rorate Cæli Desuper

Rorate Cæli Desuper was composed in 2017 and this Christmas carol is more an “Advent carol” as the lyrics, from the book of Isaiah (45:8), are frequently sung as a plainsong at Mass and in the Divine Office during Advent where it gives expression to the longings of Patriarchs and Prophets, and symbolically of the Church, for the coming of the Messiah. Throughout Advent it occurs daily as the versicle and response after the hymn at Vespers.
