Missa Populi (Mass or Music of the People) came about as a result of a desire to combine the elements of contemporary musical expression with that of the current Catholic Liturgy. The only deviation from current practice is the setting for the Credo which is not usually set to music in the Masses of today. It uses the concept of the old beatnik coffe house poets reading their poetry to a background of some sort of music, mostly jazz. It is noteworthy that the Credo was composed in the Bartok Cottage in Saranac Lake, New York on July 21st, 2005.
