The Mass in Blue is a dynamic, uplifting, and highly popular jazz setting of the Latin mass. The work features driving grooves and blues harmonies, with provision for short piano solos (notated or improvised) and great moments of musical interplay between soprano soloist and choir. It will be a worthy centre-piece for this concert.
Robert Howarth wrote of the Monteverdi pieces: ” It doesn’t matter whether one is religious or not, this music touches the human soul and reflects, sincerely and passionately the true meaning of the texts in the psalms and motets You don’t need to know what’s being sung to hear that this is a masterpiece. “
