David Hurd’s New Plainsong, a unison setting of the ordinary of the Mass first appeared in 1980 and quickly became a staple of Roman Catholic and Episcopal congregations. It was expanded in 1985 for inclusion as one the three complete mass settings in GIA’s iconic Worship—Third Edition. Now, David has set the new texts according the 2010 Roman Missal, keeping this venerable setting alive on the lips of congregations. As the title suggests, this is a chant-like setting accompanied by organ, with sections equally successful being sung unaccompanied. This is sturdy, beautiful music that is able to bear repetition week to week throughout the year.
