The Shakers did not have liturgical worship. Their services took the form of dance. ("'Tis a Gift to be Simple" is a Shaker tune used by Copland in "Appalachian Spring" and adapted as the tune of "Lord of the Dance" by Sydney Carter.) I have taken other Shaker tunes and words, including a setting of the "Lord's Prayer", and adapted, modified and arranged them into a Mass pattern. I have harmonised the tunes and written instrumental introductions and interludes. SAB & 3 violins.nThe Mass could be danced.
