The World Beloved (postponed)

Suspend any doubts you may have about classical choral “crossover”: Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass is tremendously powerful music, doing justice to both its parental musical styles. Incorporating bluegrass instruments, Barnett adapts the ancient Mass text for a modern sensibility, dealing with issues of social conscience and building community.
