Music and the Third Edition of the Roman Missal

In preparation for the use of the third edition of the Roman Missal in 2011, the National Liturgical Music Board (NLMB) recommended a number of hymns and songs which were approved by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC).  These and other resources can be found on the NLMB website.   Whilst music that can be used is not restricted to these, the resources provide a good starting point when selecting hymns and songs for Mass.

The following Mass settings are approved for use in Australia:

Mass of St Francis (Paul Taylor)
Mass of Our Lady, Help of Christians (Richard Connolly) 
Missa Magis (Christopher Willcock)
Mass of Christ the Redeemer (Bernard Kirkpatrick)
Mass of Glory and Praise (Paul Mason)
Mass Shalom (C.Smith arr. Mason)

Copyright and purchasing information can be found on the NLMB website
