The Abyssinian Mass by Wynton Marsalis
The African American experience takes center stage in The Abyssinian Mass, a swinging celebration of big-band sound and gospel soul from Grammy- and Pulitzer Prize–winning composer, bandleader, and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. Created to mark the bicentennial of Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church in 2013, the Mass moves audiences of every tradition to clap their hands in this joyous, soulful affirmation of just how high the human spirit can rise.
