CD of the Month: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis & Damien Sneed and Chorale Le Chateau - The Abyssinian Mass PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 27 December 2016 14:35

Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis & Damien Sneed and Chorale Le Chateau - The Abyssinian Mass was a project created in 2008, when Wynton Marsalis was commissioned to write a piece commemorating the 200th anniversary of Harlem s Abyssinian Baptist Church. The result was a sacred celebration: a sweeping composition for a big band and 70-piece gospel choir. In 2013, award-winning recording artist Damien Sneed and his choir, Chorale Le Chateau, joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis on a 16-city, 19-show tour across the American south and into deep dialogue with the African American history.

This is an outstanding work which marries voices with a big band ensemble. It is reminiscent of the 1963 Donald Byrd ‎album I'm Tryin' To Get Home - Brass With Voices, but on grander scale. The musical painting is all Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as his brush. This truly is a landmark treasure.

Disc 1: Devotional (8:34), Call to Worship (5:11), The Lord’s Prayer (4:13), Processional: "We Are On Our Way" (7:25), Invocation and Chant (6:29), Responsive Reading, Matthew 5:3-12 The Beatitudes (7:57), Gloria Patri (5:05), Prayer: "Pastoral Prayer" (13:05), Choral Response: "Through Him I’ve Come to See" (2:21), Anthem: "Glory to God in the Highest" (7:01)

 

Disc 2: Scripture: Isaiah 56:7 (2:36), Meditation: "Lord Have Mercy" (4:59), Sermon: "The Unifying Power of Prayer" - Part I: "This House is God’s House" (4:17), Sermon: "The Unifying Power of Prayer" - Part II: "The Power of Prayer" (4:57), Sermon: "The Unifying Power of Prayer" - Part III: "Everyone Has a Place" (3:15), Invitation: "Come and Join the Army" (4:33), Offertory: The Father (2:39), Offertory: The Son (3:22), Offertory: (You Gotta Watch) The Holy Ghost (4:45), Doxology (3:21), Recessional: "The Glory Train" (7:34), Benediction (1:27), Amen (8:20)
