Jacqueline Kennedy commissioned Leonard Bernstein to compose this massive work for the inauguration of the Kennedy Centre in New York. The Mass is seen through the eyes of a Jewish composer with an extraordinary palette of musical styles at his disposal, and draws on influences from religious to popular and Broadway musical genres. Requiring two orchestras, rock band, marching band, multiple choirs and musical singers, for obvious reasons, the monumental work is rarely performed and even rarer on disc.
