Will Todd's Mass in Blue is a dynamic, uplifting, and highly popular jazz setting of the Latin mass. The work features driving grooves and blues harmonies, with provision for short piano solos (notated or improvised) and great moments of musical interplay between soprano soloist and choir. It's a worthy centre-piece for any concert. For this edition the composer has revised the work, making it more widely accessible.
A set of notated parts for jazz trio (piano, with chord symbols, bass, and drum kit) plus an optional alto sax part is available separately on sale and on hire/rental. A full backing CD, recorded by the Will Todd Trio, is also available on sale.
