Season: General  Released: January 2005  Difficulty: Medium
   Here is a masterpiece, a missa brevis merging American hymns and spirituals with traditional choral liturgy. The solo movements have already been popular singles, but Ron has made careful alterations, simplified the keyboard part, and had the entire work orchestrated by fellow professor, John Gerhold. The unique nature of this work, and Ron's excellent reputation, will enable this cantata to be performed in both church and school programs.

 Gloria (With ''Come Thou Fount'') 
Composer: Ron Kean 

Voicing: Brass 
Season: General  Released: January 2005 
   Ron Kean's compositions have captured the attention of choral groups through the US. He has composed four pieces based on the traditional mass that include an American hymn or Spiritual (now released as an SATB cantata called the ''American Mass''). Each movement was first written for treble choir. The SATB ''Gloria'' was released last year and we are pleased to present the original SSA voicing. High School, festival, church.
