John the Revelator is a full-length choral Mass which finds roots in Kline's childhood memories of Gospel Blues and rural camp revival meetings. Kline cites Renaissance music, Bruckner, the Beach Boys and Samuel Beckett as influences. The New York Tims writes that this offbeat but ultimately moving ceremony suggests the tonal richness of Barber, the austerity of Stravinsky, and the harmonic piquancy of Ligeti.
