Chris Massa's “Missa Brevis” is a wonderful study in contrast. As with the divergent “Kyrie” and “Gloria” texts, the two movements are stylistically different. The slow and prayerful “Kyrie” is both chant-like and fugal, with voices entering and overlapping at varying intervals. The “Gloria” is boisterous and electric with an up-tempo, mixed meter, musical dance. For Lent or memorial services, this new work is dynamic. Don't miss it!
