Mass of Glory and Praise
This popular setting was originally published in 2004 and is used in many parishes and schools throughout Australia and internationally. It features choral and instrumental parts.

The Mass setting features contemporary instruments as used in parish ensembles, school bands and orchestras to support the assembly in song. Parts for flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, bass guitar and an orchestra conductor's full music edition are sold separately. Melody, SATB Choral Arrangements, Keyboard and Guitar Accompaniment included in this edition. Recommended by the Australian Bishops.
Completely revised and updated by Paul Mason, this classic, popular setting resides in the hearts of many. The newly composed material is seamlessly integrated with Colin Smith's original composition. Each setting flows easily and builds on the appeal of the original setting. It's popularity has grown and Mass Shalom is used in many parishes and schools throughout Australia. Melody, SATB Choral Arrangements, Keyboard and Guitar Accompaniment are included in this edition. Recommended by the Australian Bishops.
Mass of the Saints
This new setting fuses the new vernacular texts with Gregorian tradition and contemporary sensibilities. The setting is intended for use with guitar or keyboard accompaniment. The Mass is particularly suited to communities with limited resources. There is no requirement for a choir. A cantor is helpful for the invocations of the Penitential Act and the Alleluia verses; otherwise these parts may be spoken. The setting can work well sung by the assembly without any accompaniment, or with accompaniment provided on guitar, piano or organ. The melodies and harmonies are contemporary and the setting works well when accompanied by a band including drums and bass guitar.
