A classic, recorded in the Congo in the fifties/early sixties I think. Used in the soundtrack to the film 'If'. I'm an atheist but the way this mass is sung is sublime.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Mar 2014
Format: Audio CD
Haunting recording capturing an essence of the human spirit ranging across a world brutally colonised and "civilised" as its people were herded into specially prepared compounds to tend rubber plantations whilst having their arms chopped off if they resisted. Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" captures the other side to the coin embroidered on this disc.

Here the people subject to the regime congregate together to detail a profound human essence cascading odes of joy in being alive, steeped in pathos the chants, songs and spirituals strive forever forward. It is an African "Carmina Burana" in its lifting of the spirit into realms lying above the mundane.

Initially attracted to the music to listen to the song from "IF," the music is much more than just this one piece as it leads the listener into other worlds. Soothing, without ever being banal, it bottles a sense of somewhere else, which has no comparison except with the litanies produces within churches which is apt because this was the starting point for this exercise. But this takes it somewhere else.

Chosen for sentimental reasons I first bought this on vynil for my husband after he heard it on the radio on the drive to work over 40 years since. I was amazed to find it on CD.

I had this music on tape years ago and have updated to the CD. It hasn't aged at all. Still exciting!
Delivery was really quick.
