There are so many great things to exalt with Burchard’s new “Missa Brevis.” Set consistently for 4 part voices, we are blessed with Richard’s signature harmonies but accessible to small choirs – including church choirs! 4-movement Mass (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Agnus Dei ) was written fTheor a touring choir, when a cappella singing is an advantage (no uncertain keyboards to worry about), the individual movements are not long and easily stand alone, but the full work is wonderfully satisfying as a concert work or worship anthem. Medium difficulty. Note: The recording provided does not include the Gloria movement.
