This mass setting was composed in 2004 by Mr. William Coscarelli, Music Librarian at the University of Georgia and the organist and choirmaster at St. Stephen's Parish, Athens, Georgia.
The piece is based on the hymn tune Orientis Partibus [Office de la Circoncision Sens] (no. 324 in the 1940 Hymnal). The tune is familiar to many and easy to learn, and Missa Orientis Partibus is designed to be a contemporary, yet traditional alternative to commonly used mass settings such as those by Willan or Merbecke.
Coscarelli's Missa Orientis Partibus includes responses for the Decalogue, as well as the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus & Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. Purchase of this mass setting includes rights to unlimited reproduction, so long as it is for use within a single parish or individual choir.
