Brett's noteworthy setting, based on the familiar hymn tune DIVINUM MYSTERIUM and incorporating texts from the Sacramentary, makes an effective and memorable Advent gathering rite, seamless from procession through the opening prayer.  The presider's part is readily perceived as it outlines the elegant, stepwise motion in the melodic classic.  The writing for chorus is proficiently set for SAB.  Within the body of the octavo you will find Introits and Opening Prayers for all Sundays in Advent as well as the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. 
Topic:  Advent; Messiah; Emmanuel; Justice; Peace; Joy; Evening Prayer; Sundays of Advent; Immaculate Conception; Advent Penitential
"... my deep thanks to Brett C. Ballard for his Advent Gathering Rite. It is incredibly effective and so well done! It's simplicity is striking, and the manner in which it connects the various parts of the Gathering Rite is so seamless that it is extremely moving. I don't think I've ever had such a positive reaction to a piece of music as I have had from this one, both from the assembly as well as from the clergy. Kudos to Mr. Ballard!" John Chapman, Director of Music, St. Norbert Parish, Northbrook, IL
