Written for the Latin Mass choir of St. Mary's Church, Cadogan Street, Chelsea - Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus/Benedictus, Angus Dei. The Gloria takes the plainchant Ave Maria as a cantus firmus and the Sanctus uses the plainchant Salve Regina. 'Your music has a lilt and enthusiasm. It has a contemporary freshness and youthfulness, as well as a pleading simplicity. People reach out for a new vision of God - a cosmic approach in which we search for God in a deeper way. Your music has these qualities.' - Canon Herbert Veal
