Nova Singers to Perform Bluegrass Mass, May 22

Nova Singers, under the artistic direction of Chuck Stanley, will perform The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass — a unique composition about life — with the basis from the traditional Catholic mass paired with a joyful and spirited sound with bluegrass harmonies.

“Bluegrass is more than a sound,” Stanley emphasizes, “the lyrics of so many bluegrass songs display an unpretentious, earthy philosophy that is easy to sing and easy to understand: Adam lives just up the street and Eve’s the girl next door.” According to composer Carol Barnett, “Love is the major theme — frustrated yearning love, secret, satisfied love, or boldly proclaimed love. And although romantic love between two people is huge in bluegrass, so is love of God, the Gospel tradition. ‘In this is love, not that we loved God but that He loved us,’ says John in the Gospel, which launches our Bluegrass Mass as an immediate story of love between Creator and creation.”

The second half of the program is filled with Spirituals and Patriotic music that have long been considered audience favorites.
