Missa Gaia in Maine DVD

from Paul Winter

DVD

The Earth Mass (Missa Gaia) is a child of the space age, born out of those adventures that enabled humans to view, for the first time in history, our planet home. This grand embrace began when the astronauts of Apollo 8, on Christmas Eve 1968, sent from the moon the “Earthrise” photo that appears on the cover of this DVD. The Earth Mass was created by the Paul Winter Consort in 1981, soon after they became artists-in-residence at the worlds largest cathedral, New York’s St. John the Divine, as an ecological, ecumenical celebration of “Mother Earth” (Missa Gaia in Greek). The performance in this DVD took place at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Portland, Maine, with a chorus of 175, during the 50th anniversary year of this milestone for humanity.
