Mass for Solo Male Voice (in the Style of Chant)

Elia, Anthony J.

One of the earliest choral works, written by the composer, it is an attempt at understanding styles of chant singing. The work was composed in 1993, during a period when the composer was visiting and researching Christian monastic communities. The basic structure of this piece is in the following forms:

I. Antiphon
II. Kyrie
III. Gloria
IV. Alleluia
V. Domine (Offertory)
VI. Sanctus
VII. Beati

Other choral works have been written, including "Pax Choralis" (1995), "I Canti Romani" (2001), "Nativitatis Christi: An Oratorio" (2011-13), and "The Marian Cycle: Twelve Choral Works based on Medieval Poems of Saint Mary," (2013). "Stabat Mater" (Jan.-Feb. 2013) is included in this collection.
