For Group & Personal Prayer – The 66 musical pieces in this collection are deeply scriptural. If your meetings require a more meditative commencement (or concluding) prayer, then this resource is ideal. Each musical antiphon is presented with short pieces of reflective Scripture chosen from the Sunday Readings. Singing together and silent reflection on God’s Word are here presented in balanced simplicity. It is then a simple process to share together something of what may have touched each person’s heart as the prayer-time comes to conclusion.
For Worship – Many of these antiphons are composed for congregational singing. They can thus have a life independent of their presentation on these three CDs. Easily memorised, a selection of these antiphons can form the basis of any congregation’s responsive repertoire, usable in a variety of ritual moments. An Accompaniment book for instrumentalists (including harmonies for choral enrichment) is available from Chevalier Music.
