What has made this Mass rise to the top in popularity in parishes across the English-speaking world? Its adaptability. From parishes with keyboard and/or guitar and cantor to cathedrals with a large SATB choir and multiple instruments (organ, brass quartet, timpani, handbells), Mass of Wisdom has proven itself as a "Mass for the masses." It’s step-wise melodic patterns make it easy to learn without sounding musically trite in any way. Music directors agree that the through-composed Gloria is one of the most finely crafted of all the new musical settings of the prayer. That fine crafting extends into all components of this Mass, especially the acclamations sung during the Eucharistic Prayer. The multi-layered Hosannas in the Sanctus will delight the members of the choir as well as the singing assembly.
The Gloria is brilliant!  The praise acclamations build so wonderfully!  There is some musical referral to the Alleluia, (but not repetition) which places it nicely within the Mass setting.  The optional choir part in the middle will give the congregation a break initially, as they are learning the music.  I am very excited about it!
