A highly original and effective concert setting of the Latin Missa brevis in which the various movements embrace a variety of jazz styles. The characterful piano accompaniment can be played as written or serve as a guide, and bass and drums can join in ad lib.

London GB Experienced amateur choir trainer
I love this piece - wonderful harmonies, melodies which stick in your head...
The piano accompaniment falls under your hands easily, even for a non-jazz pianist. The SSA arrangement is satisfying, and a brief look at the SATB one seems like it is mainly adding TB to SSA rather than re-harmonising which means you could do it with a number of choir configurations(though occasionally the melody is given to TB so you'd need to check if you wanted to do this).
I don't think it would really work as a setting of the mass in a service - it is a fun and beautiful concert piece, but I'd be surprised if many people found the up-tempo numbers appropriate spiritually. (Unless, of course, they go to church for a 'concert'!)
Not really a bad point, just an indication of difficulty: I have started teaching it to our children's choir (6-14 year olds) and they coped easily with the main melodies, but are struggling with the timing and pitching of the supporting harmonies. I think they'll get it in the end, but it isn't totally easy.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating "jazzy, swing and blues in one mass, new style never heard, sounds great for young people, wakes up the 'sleeping church of Belgium', amazing piano accompaniment, ...: all reactions at the wedding mass of Eef en Bram, where Eufonia sung 'A little Jazz Mass'. 'I wanted to dance' said granny (92 years old).
The girls of Eufonia love to sing it at many occasions.
Really jazzy, a must for all youth choirs! "
