Joseph Phibbs: Missa Brevis

Books | SSA

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Joseph Phibbs
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

This setting of the Ordinary of the Latin Mass (without Credo) was premiered in May 2016 by the choristers of Wells Cathedral Choir. Filling a gap in the repertoire, the work is written for unaccompanied upper voices in three parts, the third part having the lower range (the lowest note being an infrequent G below middle C).


Offering some rhythmic challenge, the texture is largely polyphonic with points of imitation and shorter homophonic phrases. The interplay between the three parts adds to the enjoyment of ensemble singing and is immediately engaging for audiences and congregations alike.
