“Cassidy's Work is startlingly harmonic”
Chicago Tribune

Supertrain Records is proud to present a new album THE MASS by celebrated Irish composer Patrick Cassidy. Known equally well for his film scores and concert works, his new large-scale composition THE MASS is performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and London Voices at Abbey Road Studios.

 

This contemplative and peaceful work is the first symphonic setting of The Latin Mass by an Irish composer. The Latin Mass evokes a universality transcending time and place. In the language of classical antiquity, it remains today the cornerstone of our civilisation and culture. 

 

The London Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Ben Parry who also directs The London Voices. Featured soloists include mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux, tenor Matthew Long and organist Roderick Elms.
