And now, the latest! Here's the demo for "Holy", from the Mass of Good News by Matt MacPhail. Enjoy! If you know any Catholic musicians who are "in the business" & might be able to use it at their parishes, please share!
New demo! Here's "Save Us, Savior," one of the Memorial Acclamations from the Mass of Good News by Matt MacPhail. As with all the demos we've been posting, sheet music is available -- just drop us a note!
News At Eleven's Matt MacPhail is speaking at the NAMM Show today! If you're at the show, stop by and say hello!
As promised on Friday, here is a demo of the "Gloria" from the Mass of Good News, Matt MacPhail's new Mass setting. Thanks for checking this out. If you enjoy this, PLEASE SHARE! We will have sheet music of the vocal arrangement available shortly.
Another demo! This is the "Alleluia" from Matt MacPhail's new mass setting. Enjoy! As with the "Lamb of God" posted yesterday, sheet music is available if you're interested.
Time for a demo! As we mentioned back in March, News At Eleven's Matt MacPhail is working on a new Mass setting, called (appropriately enough) the Mass of Good News. Here's News At Eleven's Ann and Matt MacPhail with a demo of the "Lamb of God." Enjoy! If you're "in the biz" and would like to use it at your Mass, we have sheet music of this arrangement -- just let us know.
Hello Lisa! Thanks for the question and we're glad you're enjoying our music. The version of "This Little Light of Mine" we performed is based on the arrangement published in "Lead Me, Guide Me," the African American hymnal published by GIA Publications in Chicago. The vocal arrangement is pretty much that part, verbatim, and we would have used the same chord progression as well. The brass charts were arranged by me and we could make those available for sale if you were interested. The piano part sprung from the mind of my lovely wife (and our piano player), Ann MacPhail, so that was unfortunately never written down. I hope that answers your question! Feel free to give us a shout back if you have other questions for us. Peace! - Matt MacPhail, NAE
With a new English translation comes a need for new Mass settings, and Matt has accepted the challenge. His "Mass of Good News" is being used at St. Charles Borromeo in Arlington, VA and it includes "Praise To You" from our first album, "Have You Not Heard?" We hope to share the Mass of Good News with the rest of the world, soon!
News At Eleven's "I Am The Bread Of Life" is featured in Our Catholic Life Podcast #24. Please check out their show and tell 'em we sent you!
