congregation to join in a through-composed version of the Mass in Latin.
Music directors who wish to expand on a congregation's repertoire of simple

The "Mass of Saint Jerome" contains a Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Memorial Acclamation, Amen and Agnus Dei. It is named in
honor of the Doctor of the Church who was responsible for translating the
Bible from the original languages into Latin.
