Halina at Magpasalamat
A Compilation of Compositions and Arrangements of Mass Songs in Filipino (Ordinary Time)
Joel A. Boragay
* Digital book with audio guides for all 13 songs in the book (plus a bonus track)
From the composer:
In my desire to help church musicians in preparing songs that will accompany the spirit of every liturgical season, such as; Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter, a careful study on the rites and texts provided in the Roman Missal and other liturgical books are put into consideration. Keeping in mind that music should accompany the rite of the liturgy and that it should enhance the text using the different elements of music, this songbook “Halina at Magpasalamat”, a compilation of mass songs in Filipino was conceived.
Other seasons of the Liturgical Year bear specific mysteries of Christ. Apart from those seasons having their own distinctive character, there remain in the yearly cycle 33 or 34 weeks in which no particular aspect of the mystery of Christ is celebrated, rather, the mystery of Christ itself is honored in its fullness, especially on Sundays. This period is known as Ordinary Time. (GIRM, Universal Norms, 43). May this compilation help us reflect the mystery of Christ.
Inspired by many liturgical musicians, this work is a product of my contemplation and research in Liturgical Music. May this songbook serve as a guide for our church musicians in carrying out their functions and find it appropriate in every liturgical celebration during this Ordinary Time.
However, as your way of support, may I also request to please buy the original copy and refrain from duplicating the content of this book. Rest assured that I will continue to spread the Good News and share with you the inspiration which I have received from God through music. It is also my prayer that you find inspiration from my compositions and that this book may bring you more closely to your personal encounter with the Divine.
