Notes and Editorial Reviews

The breathtakingly beautiful centerpiece of Fanshawe's repertoire has gained favor with listeners in the years since it's introduction in 1973. The fusing of a Catholic mass with native African and rock is certainly a leftfield concept, especially for the time in which it was conceived. As musical tastes have evolved, so has the perception of this groundbreaking recording.
