Toronto: Jazz Festival 2016: Toronto Mass Choir


Toronto Mass Choir, Jazz Festival 2016, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. June 2016.


I am a sucker for the union of many voices. How many eons of humanity are there in which we have curled the sounds we can make with our throats, mouths, tongues, and the manipulation of air through our lips - in unison or in harmony - to effect a communal one-ness?

In listening to gospel music specifically, it evokes for me strength, surrender, hope, determination, acceptance, love, exuberance, action, declaration, courage, unity.  

The Toronto Mass Choir performed at the Jazz Festival.
