This single octavo includes a setting of Holy Father for SATB choir and congregation, with optional flute and brass choir, that is, for three trumpets, French horn, trombone, and tuba.
In the celebration of the Eucharist, appropriate songs are needed during Communion. The rite makes demands on repertory that are both practical and theological.
This octavo provides a hymn that is easy to sing during the distribution of Communion, since it has a simple refrain for the people; it is a practical setting. Holy Father is also appropriate for the liturgy, since it is directed to the Father through Christ; it is theologically appropriate as well.
On the inside back cover of this octavo, one verse of Holy Father is included with the original Polish words and a guide to phonetic pronunciation. The choir may intersperse this Polish language verse with the English verses, especially in congregations where there are people of Polish descent.
Note that ACP does not make available a separate full score of Holy Father. All instrumental parts are included in this single octavo.
