New missal resources: OCP Publications

Ed. note: This post is the fourth in a series about publishers’ resources to assist with implementation of the new missal. Today, Erin McClellan from OCP Publications discusses what OCP is preparing.

OCP has a variety of resources to prepare congregations for the implementation of the new Roman Missal.

New Roman Missal Resource page

OCP.org/NewMassSettings is designed to serve as a planning guide for all things related to the third edition of the Roman Missal. Visitors to the page will find what they need conveniently located in one place: practical resources, Mass settings, catechetical articles related to the new translation, links to useful websites, frequently asked questions and more.

Mass Settings

After several years of close collaboration with both composers and customers, OCP is able to offer a wide variety of parish-tested Mass settings, available in print or digital editons.

New Settings include:

  • Mass of Christ the Savior by Dan Schutte
  • Mass of Renewal by Curtis Stephan
  • Mass of St. Paul the Apostle by Christopher Walker
  • Mass of Resurrection by Randall DeBruyn
  • Misa Santa Cecilia/Mass of St. Cecilia by Estela García-López & Rodolfo López

Revised Settings include:

  • Celtic Mass by Christopher Walker
  • Heritage Mass by Owen Alstott
  • Mass of Glory by Ken Canedo and Bob Hurd
  • Misa del Pueblo Inmigrante by Bob Hurd (bilingual)

OCP has published several additional Mass settings, available exclusively online. These digital-editions bring composer manuscripts straight to parish musicians, allowing them to test out and pick the best setting(s) for their assemblies and ensembles from the convenience of their computer.

Resources for the Assembly

Revised Order of Mass with Supplemental Mass Settings: This assembly supplement contains texts, prayers and responses for the revised Order of Mass—including the official English-language ICEL chant settings—along with lyrics and melody lines to the five new Mass settings and four revised settings above.  There is also a CD available, with full recordings of all the five new mass settings and all the updated sections of the four revised settings.

FREE assembly downloads: For a limited time (until November 26, 2011), OCP is offering FREE assembly edition downloads of all new and revised Mass settings to help congregations learn and sing the new translation.

Catechetical support

Today’s Liturgy: OCP is publishing insightful catechetical pieces in each issue of the quarterly magazine Today’s Liturgy magazine that address the new translation. As they become available, you can download those articles free of charge.
