Coming up next in the Main Series:
Gift of Transformation: Two Unique Settings of the Latin Mass
In the Sanctuary.
“Missa Popularis” by Mårten Jansson is a sublime setting of the traditional Latin Mass yet has its musical roots in Swedish folk tunes and derives its charm from the combination of women’s voices and string quartet.
“A Little Jazz Mass” by Bob Chilcott successfully brings together the very diverse traditions of the Latin mass and the jazz idiom in his wonderful setting of the Latin Missa Brevis; driving rhythms give way to a jazz lullaby followed by blues riffs in this unique setting for women’s voices and jazz trio.
