Use: RCIA Dismissal Rite
Required Resources: Cantor, congregation, organ
Optional Resources: Soprano descant
Composer and church musician Alex Hill wrote "You Will Not Be Strangers"
as a dismissal rite for the RCIA class of 1996-97 at his church.
It is practical and useful, due to its well-crafted and singable melody
and the thirteen verses, adapted from Ephesians, from which one can choose
appropriate verse(s) to accompany the ritual action. The organ
accompaniment is instrument-specific (not a piano part played on organ) and
the music includes an easy and effective descant over the congregational
refrain, "You will not be strangers in the house of the Lord, but one in the
Spirit with the holy ones of God."
