In the twentieth century new forms of worship developed in the countries outside of Europe. This new sacred music represented a growing openness to the cultures of the countries in which the Catholic faith was practised. Here we present pieces of two popular masses, Missa Creola from Latin America and Missa Luba from central Africa.
