This intercultural (Kenyan musical styles with late 20th century American classical music) Mass movement in Latin is scored for SATB chorus (with some divisi) with piano and horn accompaniment. For the most part, this piece is homophonic; however, there are short sections of cross-rhythms. The horn and piano parts are moderately difficult but well worth the effort.
