THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE BEEN TO RECENT TONGUES OF FIRE LIVE EVENTS

WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED - HERE'S OUR NEXT OUTING!

 

Here's the link to the very simple video of last year's event at St. Nic's which we hope gives you a flavour of the team's ministry:

Hi there - please do check out my YouTube Channel @hymnsbymikeanderson where I've been posting some vocal version of my hymns - with a focus recently on the Responsorial Psalms!

It's a massive job but I hope it might serve you in your own music ministry!

Here's my latest Mass setting - written for my lovely Mum!

Here's my version (written in the summer of 2017) which is word for word faithful to the so called Shorter Version. (It still runs at 12 minutes!)

It's got a refrain which pops in a few times and an antiphonal section where the congregation join in singing "This, this is the night!"

Over the last few years I have been working on setting all the Sunday responsorial psalms. It's been a huge project but I think I've finally done it!

The psalms are based on The Grail Psalms. I am massively grateful to The Grail Community for such wonderful translations which have moved me to write these settings and also for allowing me to place these settings here.

Please click on this icon to learn more about them.

If you want to use them, I suggest you look at the Upcoming psalms section which I try to run 5-6 weeks in advance. If you're looking longer term, then there is the Responsorial psalm index. I hope they may serve you and your congregation in some way.

Special thanks to the good people of Our Lady of Good Help, Wavertree, Liverpool and Christ the King, Childwall, Liverpool where most of these settings were sung for the first time.

The wonderful music group there has been especially brave in embracing the challenge of a new setting each time we sing.

Maria D and Suzie, Maria F, Amy, Lucy, Rick, Liam and Clive - thanks!
