Yale  University’s  Forum on Religion and Ecology Newsletter has said the following about Bill Wallace’s cosmologically oriented mass.

“Although written from a Christian perspective, “Sacred Energy / Mass of the Universe.”   addresses all humans. Aiming to transform human-Earth relations, the mass invites dialogue between all of the world’s religious traditions as well as dialogue between humans and the cosmos as a whole. Reflecting on Wallace’s work, we are reminded of another advocate of inter-religious dialogue and of intimate relations between humans and the unfolding cosmos: the geologian Thomas Berry.”


Those who cannot attend the event might be interested in viewing or downloading – see the links below for the three separate entries

Part 1  presents the mass in a form that you can interact with. Each individual musical segment has both an audio file (mp3) and a musical score (pdf).

A separate resource, Part 2, contains downloadable pdf’s with the complete text (including melody lines) as well the complete musical score for an accompanist.

Finally, Part 3 has some background commentary on the mass and the Powerpoint slides that illustrate it.

All this constitutes a narrated musical exploration of the mystical sense of oneness and sacredness of all that is according to Progressive Christianity.

With kindest regards and many thanks,

Bill Wallace.…/sacred-energy-mass-of-the-universe-part-1/
