Commissioned by director Andrew Harris of the University of North Texas Department of Dance and Theatre for use in UNT’s 2014 production of the play “Doubt: A Parable,” this work is a small mass setting flanked by a postlude and prelude. The piece draws from various traditional chants from the Kyriale, used as cantus firmi, a Civil Rights Era anthem, and a traditional Catholic hymn to create a setting which provides commentary on the Church from many different eras and viewpoints.
