On Earth, Peace

For this New Sounds program, listen to some choral music, including “On Earth, Peace,” a new mass by the choir Chanticleer featuring music by five different composers of different faiths. Each composer was invited to set one standard portion of the Catholic Mass according to his or her personal spiritual beliefs. The resulting work, with settings from Kamran Ince, Ivan Moody, Shulamit Ran, Michael McGlynn, and Douglas J. Cuomo, contains a bit of Latin but also incorporates Jewish texts, Rumi poetry, a Gaelic song and a section of Greek Orthodox liturgy. Also on the show, choral music from the Republic of Georgia, Corsica, the Ensemble Organum, UK composer Joby Talbot, and more.
