Caribbean Mass

Yesterday evening, I rehearsed American composer Glenn McClure’s St. Francis in the Americas: A Caribbean Mass as an alto singer with the Jefferson Unitarian Church Choir.  The mass features an eclectic mix of traditional and ethnic sounds.  The JUC Choir will be performing this work on December 16th.  I look forward to celebrating the holiday season with a musical work I have not heard or sung before. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy the many renditions of the traditional Christmas Carols, The Nutcracker, and the Messiah, but I welcome a new musical way to express “‘Tis the season!”
