An early work by Milton Babbitt, it employs a rigorous contrapuntal style and demonstrates a stunning command of advanced compositional techniques including inverted counterpoint, juxtapositions of motifs and extreme chromaticism, yet remains eminently singable and melodic. Movements include: Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei.
