Described by the composer as 'a prayer for sanity, a cry in the wilderness to a god who may or may not be there', this unconventional Mass (with new words) is written in the context of a world where millions of people die of hunger every year, where 10% of living species are under threat of extinction. The Mass is angrily critical of the intolerance, injustice and corruption of our world and those who control it. Duration c. 24 mins. For SATB chorus, a cappella. Vocal score.
