Comments from Fr. Wil Steinbacher
“I am a retired priest of 53 years. I attended the first Mass for Peace written by Marlene Tachoir. I had a couple of questions about the Mass. One was will it be a presentation that will over shadow the Eucharist. The answer is no. It complemented the Eucharist. There is a gentleness to the music that encourages a sense of peace. In fact it highlights the message of peace and reconciliation of the Eucharist.
A second question was, will it allow for people's participation? The answer is the music is simple enough that people can easily sing the parts of the Mass. The people present did not find it difficult to pick up the words and music.
If you are considering having the Jazz Mass. I would encourage you to have it. I think you would find it helpful for the spiritual journey of those seeking to be peace makers. For full disclosure I am a friend and admirer of Marlene's work.”
