Mass in the International Language (Christoph Dalitz, 2019)

This mass setting is based on the Esperanto translation of the liturgical text as published by the Internacia Katolika Unuiĝo Esperantista (IKUE). I am grateful to the IKUE for the kind permission to use this translation. Thereby, I can provide an easily singable mass setting in an easy to learn and to speak international language.

The original disposition for this setting is the combination alto/tenor, but it can be sung as well with soprano/alto or tenor/bass, depending on the available singers. The Sanctus has a chorus with a melody sufficiently simple to be sung by the entire congregation. In this case, the verses can be sung alternatingly by the choir or soloists.
