With a highly spirited, uplifting gospel sound, The Mass of Saint Cyprian is truly a celebration! This full mass setting is accessible to varied resources, from cantor and assembly, to the incredible power of an orchestra and gospel choir. Kenneth Louis utilizes call-and-response throughout the mass, making it easy for the assembly to join in. From the pleading sounds of "I Am Willing, Lord," and the beautiful, flowing melody of "Taste and See," to the uplifting "Jesus, You Brought Me All the Way," the Mass of Saint Cyprian is an inspiring way for everyone involved to pray.
The live recording of this collection demonstrates just how powerful this setting can be, featuring the wonderfully talented Holy Comforter-Saint Cyprian Catholic Church Gospel Choir and Orchestra in Washington, DC, under the direction of composer Kenneth W. Louis.
