The five movements of And on Earth, Peace: A Chanticleer Mass are composed by five dynamic contemporary composers coming together from distinctive cultural and musical backgrounds. A composer of works performed by the world's major orchestras and opera companies, Israeli-born Shulamit Ran will contribute the Credo, to a Hebrew text. Canadian film composer Mychael Danna will write the Kyrie. Turkish-American Kamran Ince will compose the Gloria section in a setting of a Sufi text. Ivan Moody will write a Sanctus in the Greek Orthodox tradition. And Irish folk and medieval-influenced composer Michael McGlynn will craft the Agnus Dei.
