MissadeAngelis

Edited and arranged by Christopher Moore
Version 2 March 2002

The Gregorian Mass known as the Missa de Angelis is believed to date from as early as the
9
th
century. It is a plainsong mass, designed to be sung in unison and a cappella.

This arrangement attempts to keep the essential character of the Mass, whilst providing a
harmonically simple modern setting. The transcription of the Mass itself is from the
original neumes, and is as consistent as possible with the commonly accepted
interpretation of the flow of the music.

This is not intended to be an academically precise interpretation ; there is, of course, no
such thing. It is, however, based upon the editors own experience, and may be regarded
as one possible way of interpreting the work. The accompaniment is suitable for both
piano and organ this version has an organ pedal part.

The Solo and Tutti markings are editorial and suggestive only. If a soloist is used, then an
alto or bass voice may be preferable.

There are four parts to the Mass.

! Kyrie
! Gloria
! Sanctus and Benedictus
! Agnus Dei

Also included are facsimiles of the neumes from which the arrangement was made. These
are available through the excellent site at http:/ / siul.rc.ipt.br/ cantgreg/ index_eng.htm,
together with vocal recordings and much more very useful information

The editor would appreciate feedback on this arrangement, and any suggestions for
improvement. E-mail may be sent to cid_moore@optusnet.com.au.

This edition may be freely copied for non-commercial performance. It may not, however,
be changed in any way without the editors approval.
