Jacob Bancks is a great composer. We now have the 4 Bs, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Bancks. I now have a list of all the saints, in English and Latin.
We will be hearing more of his "Mass For All Saints". It was at least as good as Mozart's Requiem Mass which comprised the second half of the concert.
The Millennium Chamber Players and Chorus under the baton of Robert Katkov-Trevino handled both masses admirably, as well as the Adagietto movement of the Mahler 5th.
It was an evening well spent.
