April 23, 2017 - Earth Day

This Sunday was Earth Day.  In lieu of a sermon, the choir performed Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia (Earth Mass), which contains much of the traditional Latin text of the Mass, plus passages from scripture, other text in English, and sounds of a wolf and a whale.  The choir and soloist were accompanied by piano, rhythm instruments, and soprano saxophone in this jazz-like score.
