For Advent and Christmas
Three Festive Mass Settings Based on Beloved Hymn Tunes
Missa de Lumine
Adapted and Arranged by Kathleen Demny
Kathleen Demny, inspired by Carol Browning’s arrangement of the hymn tune CONDITOR ALME SIDERUM (“Creator of the Stars of Night”), has further adapted and arranged the tune as the basis for Missa de Lumine. The Browning arrangement appears in several GIA hymnals, making the Demny setting the perfect addition to Advent celebrations.
