The complete Mass setting will be used in liturgical celebrations and the formation of choirs in the communities. It is composed by liturgical music composer Fr. Manoling Francisco, SJ and arranged by Sir Jason Ros.

The first part of the songbook includes the lead sheets (melody, chord, and lyrics) for use of any choir, guitarist, and organist in our parishes and communities. The second part of the songbook contains the choral and organ arrangements for the whole Mass Setting.

The launched culminated with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided over by Cardinal Tagle.

In his homily, he said that the spirit of the Pista ng Sambayanan should continue in every home of every Filipino because it symbolizes the people’s gratitude to the Lord. 

He also stressed that the faithful should evaluate his relationship with the Lord to become better stewards of his grace.

“Kayraming biyayang masasayang kasi hindi maayos ang pakikitungo sa Pangioon kaya’t hindi namumukadkad ang bawat talent,” Cardinal Tagle said.

Attended by the different music coordinators, directors, and representatives from various parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila, the event was organized by the Manila Cathedral and Manila Archdiocesan Ministry on Music in the Liturgy.

The songbook, which includes Papuri sa Diyos, Offertory Hymn, Ama Namin, Communion Song, and Recessional Song is available at Php 250 each at the Manila Cathedral Cabildo St., Intramuros, Manila; Tanging Yaman Store at Sonolux Building, Ateneo de Manila University; and Tanging Yaman Kiosk, 5th Floor SM Megamall.
