Abstract

In the composition of this Mass the composer was faced with several alternatives in the selection of a suitable musical style. These choices were narrowed to include (1) "traditional" or "romantic"; (2) "pop"; or "jazz"; (3) "folk-mass"; or (4) avant garde. The ultimate choice was a synthesis, consisting of devices from fourteenth century music, and elements of contemporary style.
