A Setting of the Holy Communion Service (ASB Rite A),
but adaptable for Common Worship

(by Michael Lehr)

Agnus Dei

There are many congregational settings available for what was the commonly-used liturgy until quite recently, but few that are not exclusively geared to the church organ.

This setting was written to provide music that would work with a varied small instrumental group including guitars, or just a keyboard, and (especially) without forcing the words into unnatural rhythms. It’'s worked rather well in practice, and it’s very easily adaptable to the Common Worship liturgy, with no change to the music (though I may add some acclamations at some stage).

This setting is not at all like my very early “Mass Of Saints And Sinners”, as it’s not trying to be high contemporary for its time. But it is at least more modern than most!
