Liturgical music publisher OCP announces the release of their new antiphon resource for ensembles and assemblies, Let Us All Rejoice. Featuring modern musical settings of the Entrance and Communion Antiphons from renowned songwriters Steve Angrisano, Sarah Hart and Curtis Stephan, this collaborative effort contains music for the entire year and serves as a complement to any OCP missal or hymnal that contains the antiphon texts — including the contemporary Choose Christ Missal. With over 200 unique settings and many common melodies used for multiple texts, assemblies will be encouraged to participate as they grow more comfortable with each piece.
Let Us All Rejoice contains:
- Settings for every Sunday and major feast day of the Church year
- Verbatim texts from the Roman Missal
- Ensemble accompaniment book for piano, guitar and vocal parts
- Exquisite recordings for learning and scripture meditation
- Compositions written with assembly participation in mind
“More and more parishes are seeking to incorporate the Scripture-based antiphons into their Sunday liturgies, as recommended by the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM 48),” OCP Publisher Wade Wisler says. “Let Us All Rejoice offers simple but beautiful musical settings, making it easy for your community to learn and sing the Entrance and Communion Antiphons throughout the entire liturgical year. OCP is proud to offer this groundbreaking new resource.”
Discussing the inspiration behind the new antiphon collection, Manager of Music Development Rick Modlin says, “There are a number of different antiphon resources out there, but there isn’t one that’s aligned better with more contemporary or modern music liturgies.”
