Since Wynton Marsalis composed and recorded In This House, On This Morning two decades ago, he has remained committed to projecting a theme of universal humanism – and raising a joyful noise – while reflecting the form of the African American church service. Never has Marsalis coalesced the codes of sacred and secular expression more successfully than with the 2008 extended work Abyssinian Mass, commissioned to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Abyssinian Baptist Church on West 138th Street in Harlem. This weekend, Jazz at Lincoln Center revisits this masterwork, augmenting the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis with tap dancer extraordinaire Jared Grimes, sermonizing from the Reverend Calvin O. Butts, III, and the 70-voice gospel choir, Chorale Le Chateau, conducted by Damien Sneed.
