Kyrie and Gloria

Under Appreciated

The remainder of the first CD has several popular-music renditions of selected sections of the Catholic Mass; they include the rock- and folk-flavored “Prayer for Mercy”, “Kyrie and Gloria”, “Lord, Have Mercy”, and “Love One Another”, plus “Bossa Nova Mass” and “Kyrie from ‘Jazz Mass’”.  A fairly well known hymn is included, “They’ll Know We Are Christians by Our Love”.  This song was written in 1968 by Peter Scholtes (also a Catholic priest), who also wrote Bossa Nova MassJars of Clay has recorded the song, among others.  The final cut, “Walking out Song” was evidently written by yet another Catholic priest, John Barry
These songs are not unlike what could be heard at churches across the country for the past several decades, though not this lovely and rich – the same meditative pace on much of the 
Search Party album is also present here.
