Here in Christ we Gather is a new collection of liturgical music by Irish composer Ephrem Feeley. The 14-piece collection includes entrance and communion processionals, psalms, reflective pieces, and more. The book carries the complete music score for the compositions, with full choir parts, instrumental lines, and accompaniments.
The accompanying CD features a recording of the collection with chamber choir, instrumentalists, soloists, and organ/piano accompaniment.
Ephrem Feeley works as organist, choral director and music teacher. Much of his music has been published – in the US by GIA Publications, and in the UK by Decani Music. His Mass of Saint Paul featured throughout the 2012 International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. He regularly gives workshops throughout Ireland to liturgical music groups.
The collection Here in Christ we Gather is a welcome addition to the liturgical repertoire of parishes, schools and religious communities, as well as those who wish to enrich their prayer life through music.
NB. All pieces have optional SAB or SATB parts plus an instrumental part (some for B flat clarinet)
