Missa Brasileira – Jean Kleeb
Latin Mass for mixed choir SATB, soprano solo, cello, percussion and band

The liturgical Mass text of Missa Brasileira is set to typical Brazilian rhythms and styles and builds a bridge between European spiritual choral music and the rhythmic intensity of South America. The blending of harmonies of the Renaissance and Early Baroque with the melodies and rhythms of Indian and Afro-Brazilian music is audible.

Popular styles like bossa nova, samba and baião are integrated within sacred choral music. Read more at http://www.missabrasileira.de/english.html
