The solemnity of the classical-based Mass joins together with the down-home sparkle of bluegrass to create a work that is unique in scope, and a beautiful union of seemingly disparate musical traditions. The a cappella setting of Agnus Dei is rich with lush harmonies that breathe new life into an oft-set text.
