Jazz Mass for Mixed Choir and Band (tenorsax, guitar, piano, percussion) Meditatus is written as a commission for Bodø Cathedral Choir in 2004. In this piece composer Jan Gunnar Hoff integrates a traditional mass with jazz elements and grooves from a modern jazz/rock band. Meditatus received an Edvard-prize from TONO in 2005. Quotes from the jury statement: “A simple and beautiful main theme captivates and fascinates the listener. The strict form of the mass is kept while the improvised parts seem neither unmotivated nor strange. This is music that can be performed and appreciated by many”.
