All holy men and women, pray for us! November 1, 2009

all_saints_day

This morning I was happy to help organize a choir for the annual Artists’ Mass at Regis College at the Toronto School of Theology, which happened to fall on the feast of All Saints, the Christian “Memorial Day.” For the processional the choir created an adaptation of the traditional “Litany of the Saints” from the Roman Missal arranged for guitar, clawhammer banjo, two fiddles (a.k.a. violins), bass, and three cantors. We followed the Litany with “Alleluia! Sing to Jesus” for a gathering hymn.

Here is an mp3 of the Litany/”Allelluia! Sing to Jesus” Medley, as well as an mp3 of our version of “For All the Saints” which was used for the presentation of the gifts. Right-click on each of the links to download the track.

Happy All Saints Day!
