Sunrise Mass in the Afternoon will feature two stunning versions of the Ordinary of the Mass.
The Singers will begin the performance with the 500-year-old Missa Pangue Lingua by Josquin des Prez. The Missa Pangue Lingua is considered Josquin’s most famous mass.
The second half of the performance will feature a more recent composition by Ola Gjeilo, the Sunrise Mass. This spiritually-uplifting extended work, neither expressly sacred nor secular, uses ancient texts even though the titles of the movements are in English: I. The Spheres (Kyrie); II. Sunrise (Gloria); III. The City (Credo); IV. Identity & The Ground (Sanctus).
Ola Gjeilo is one of the Cheyenne Chamber Singers favorite composers . . and Sunrise Mass in the Afternoon will show off the powerful voices of the Singers, accompanied by local and regional instrumentalists.
