Mass of Saint Roch - Score Cover

Mass of Saint Roch

Free

I composed the Mass of Saint Roch from 2009 to 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.

Alleluia for Alto Recorder and Harpsichord - Score Cover

Alleluia for Alto Recorder and Harpsichord

Alleluia for alto recorder and harpsichord was composed in 1997 and is one of the first intrumental pieces I wrote. One can tell that I was already in love with counterpoint.
