Last month in a post about the late Dave Brubeck, I mentioned that the great jazz pianist and composer had become a Catholic shortly after composing a Mass TO HOPE. The Mass was commissioned by Brubeck’s friend, Ed Murray, editor of the Our Sunday Visitor newspaper in Indiana. Yesterday, Ed Murray himself left a comment giving some background on the Mass and his friendship with Brubeck. It’s fascinating.
I’ve never heard TO HOPE. After reading Murray’s comment, I ordered a copy.
