Within the 12 movements of Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass, she blends the classical mass, modern choral sophistication, touching poetry and traditional bluegrass instrumentation into an exhilarating musical experience. As reviewed by the Minneapolis Star Tribune during its World Premiere in 2007 – “The contrasts between the sophisticated classical choral sound and the jubilant bluegrass harmonies were effectively used to make the text come alive…the triumphant Gloria…was an exuberant success. Likewise, the Credo…became a powerful Gospel number. This mass was a compelling statement of faith that ended on a note of sublime grace and peace.”
Guest Conductor Philip Brunelle is Founder and Artistic Director of VocalEssence, comprised of the 130-voice VocalEssence Chorus and the 32-voice professional Ensemble Singers.
