    Missa Gaia is unlike most masses in that it has animal sounds as an integral part of it. And the musical motives used in several of the movements are based directly on animal sounds. The music is excellent.

    Incredibly fun music! Driven by percussion, all choirs will have a blast performing this music. Extremely accessible by amateur singers in community and church choirs, only "The Beatitudes" requires large choral forces. Bring together liturgical dancers and African drumming for the full visual, listening and spiritual experience.
