Eucharistic Acclamations

Priory Mass

  • Holy, holy
    Holy, holy, holy Lord,
    God of power and might.
    Heaven and earth are full of your glory:
    Hosanna in the highest heavens;
    Hosanna in the highest heavens!
  • Blessed is he who comes in the name,
    who comes in the name of the Lord.
    Ho-san-na in the highest heavens;
    Hosanna in the highest heavens!
  • Acclamation
    Christ has died,
    Christ is risen,
    Christ will come again. (repeat)
  • Great Amen
    ...for ever and ever:
    Amen, amen, amen. (repeat)

The Priory Mass was written in 1996 for Clare Priory in Suffolk, UK. It has been used during the annual Augustinian pilgrimage to Shrine of Our Lady at Clare Priory on and off since then.

There were a number of people who inspired and encouraged me to write this mass setting, Fr David Middleton and the musicians and singers in the parish especially, but special mention must be made of Fr Laurence Brassill who started the ball rolling by challenging me to write a music for the Penitiential Rite fifteen minutes before he was going to use it in a Mass that we were going to celebrate with a local school. It grew from there to this whole mass setting used with pilgrims to the Priory as well as in other churches around the UK.

The Gospel Greeting has been published in the hymn book Laudate (Decani Music) which is available from their website »
