Schoepsdau's New York Mass is based on the English text of the mass, which is subject to musical interpretation. New York Mass employs a great variety of styles. Thus the composer combines swinging jazz sections and flowing Latin rhythms with thrilling funk and gospel elements, creating an amazingly homogeneous work. Good work! Christoph has done a remarkable job of bridging jazz elements and traditional sacred text.' Darmon Meader (New York Voices).
