With his Latin Jazz Mass Martin Völlinger presents a rousing, multifaceted work, which is equally suited for religious services as well as in concert. This Mass, multifaceted in compositional technique and musicality and characterized by emotions such as joy, trust, hope and happiness, not only enthralls the listener by means of the detailed interpretation of the texts, but also by its combination of various rhythms and styles – from salsa, samba, bossa nova, rumba, tango and gospel to pop ballads and funk. Diversified grooves, catchy characteristic melodies, sophisticated harmony, improvisational elements, solo passages, a diversified choral and instrumental part-writing as well as an abundant formal richness appeal to a large audience.
The Austrian performance premiered on 1 June 2013 in the course of a very intense two-day live recording in the Remise Bludenz, Vorarlberg. This performance of the powerfully voices and highly expressive Vorarlberg Youth Choir Voices in the abbey church St. Gerold in Groß Walsertal was rewarded with standing ovations. The present CD under the masterful direction of Oskar Egle and the musicians Martin Franz, Benjamin Omerzell, Stephan Reinthaler and Jörg Mikula represents the preliminary apex of the reception history of this Mass.
