Kyrie – A Gospel Mass

This gospel mass by Stephan Zebe offers a real feeling of Gospel Music for your choir work. He set the English mass text to music in six rousing and moving movements.

The arrangements for soloists and four-part choir are soulful and powerful. The half-hour work is accompanied by piano or band. An accompaniment for rhythm section and wind instruments is available. In full line-up, including a Hammond B3, a playback is available for accompaniment in rehearsal or performance.
For Stephan Zebe, “Kyrie – A Gospel Mass” is the consequence of bringing gospel music as contemporary church music into the church service and the church service into the concert. It is important to him to authentically present the structure of the mass as a form close to faith and life and to make it tangible.

This gospel mass is one of our bestsellers. It has been performed in over twenty countries worldwide.

Kyrie, Glory be to God on High, O Lord (You Alone Are Holy), I Believe, Sanctus, Lamb of God

We definitely recommend the gospel mass Kyrie – A Gospel Mass by Stephan Zebe.
A rhythmically and harmonically demanding work.
Very rewarding, as it reproduces the typical gospel style very authentically.”
(Musik & Kirche)

“Zebe presents a work that does honour to the term gospel in its musical language… The work conveys a well thought-out concept.” (Mitteldeutsche Zeitung)

“The choral movements are very sonorous and lively throughout… This gospel mass offers the opportunity to supplement school choir work with a challenging but also motivating work.” (Musik und Bildung)
