Tate, Paul A.

The eighth volume in the Seasons of Grace series features a delightful mix of chant and traditional hymnody along with several popular contemporary liturgical songs. The beautiful melodies of Michael Joncas are featured in two pieces (his well-loved “As Morning Breaks” as well as one of his newest creations, “Deep and Lasting Peace”). The dynamic pieces “’Tis the Gift to Be Simple,” “Noel Nouvelet,” and “Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella,” dance along with sparkling eighth and sixteenth notes. Newer liturgical titles include pieces by Jeanne Cotter, Chris de Silva, Rory Cooney, Zack Stachowski, and Paul’s “Life Is Changed, Not Ended.” The collection is rounded out by two more of Paul’s popular interludes, both of which are created for flexible use with optional repeats laid out on two easy-to-read pages. Most pieces are at the intermediate level, with only a few moments of more advanced technique that may require extra preparation. Complete your collection with Volume 8 today!
