Pipes & Phones, the most successful duo of Peter & Peter since 1995, have released a somewhat unusual CD - at least for the jazz scene. "Missa" is based on the five traditional ordinarium parts of the Roman Mass. Take it for sure that you will find thousands of classical compositions and interpretations the subject of which are the KYRIE - GLORIA - CREDO - SANCTUS - AGNUS DEI.
In the jazz scene, however, hardly a composer has made approaches to this theme. The more it is to admire that Peter Schindler has composed a mass based just on this Latin suite of prayers.

Schindler's music is very sensitive - giving much room for reflections. He transforms the contents of the prayers in a reallly adequate way, nevertheless with a subliminal, not insistent rhythm.
The saxes and the organ take turns with the choir, appearing as contrasts of each other. Peter Lehel blows some wonderful soloes which complete the wonderful impression of this MISSA.
