Mass of Saint Roch – Penitential Act

Free

I composed this penitential act 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.

Love Came Down at Christmas - Score Cover

Love Came Down at Christmas

Love Came Down at Christmas is the very first Christmas carol that I composed for the International Choir and Orchestra of Ho Chi Minh City in 2016. Based on lyrics of Christina Rossetti, this lovely poem invites us to contemplate the humble love of God for humankind and how this movement of God towards us eventually saves us.
The music is at the same time sweet and passionate, bright and meditative, to express this non-instinctive wonder of the extraordinary of God in the ordinary of life.
