Contrasting religious music styles from Western European, Afro-American, and 21st-century traditions converge in Mass, a concert designed as a Catholic mass. Each of these cultures approaches beauty in a different way, yet they all critically examine how we deal with personal problems in our lives.

Originally designed as a work for bass-baritone and piano by American opera singer Davóne Tines, Mass has been adapted for the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam with the Calder Quartet performing and the voice and string quartet merging organically. The design and direction of Mass are in the hands of Lisenka Heijboer Castañón, whose love of music is the foundation for telling a story.
