The program includes the “Coronation Mass” by Mozart, the Canadian composer Ruth Watson Henderson’s “Missa Brevis,” and “Missa Luba,” a Mass setting based on Congolese folk tunes. The South African singer Peter Ncanywa will sing tenor solo on “Missa Luba,” which will also be accompanied by African drummers and St. Ann’s School dancers. Tickets are $15 ($12 for seniors and students) and may be purchased here.
There will also be performances of “Missa Pangea” on Friday evening, January 25, starting at 7:00, at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 286-88 Seventh Avenue (at Seventh Street), and on Saturday evening, January 26, also at 7:00, at Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, 85 South Oxford Street.
