I met Jesse around 1992 at a conference in which this music was played during our on site masses. It is so beautiful and moving. It remains one of my favorite collections for inspiriation of a multicultural setting in the liturgy of the mass. Primarily in English and Spanish, it includes directions for incorporating the Spanish aspects. The music highlights the specific mass areas which are integral to the celebration ( e.g. Kyrie, Intercessions etc) as opposed to optional choices such as entrance, communion, closing etc. At the same time the music can be used in other settings. For example, the song "Aqua Viva" would be very appropriate for a Holy Thursday washing of feet service. I recommend it highly.
