Gwaihirintheair (2 years ago) it's been wonderful to find "The Missa Luba"!!! I used to enjoy listening to it since an uncle of mine had the long playing record. Then he died and I could never find neither listen to it again!!! Thanks very much!!!

dickdona (2 years ago) Is this the only African sung mass? If anyone knows of another please post. I have heard one in India in Hindi but can't source it.

Bushbaby387 (1 year ago) I haven't seen the "Lost and Delirious" movie, but can tell you that this track was used wonderfully in Lyndsay Anderson's "If" - the film that shoehorned Malcom McDowell into the part of "Alex" in Clockwork Orange

dunnonuffink (1 year ago) Ah, god, I had a tape of this when cassette tapes were a newish thing. It snarled up, and I couldn't buy a new one.
 
I thought I'd never be able to hear it again.
 
From the bottom of my heart, thanks for posting it. And the whole thing, too!

zagdib (1 year ago) I discovered this when I was 16 years old (more than 45 years ago !).
I re-discovered this one day ago. It's an emotion for me.
Thanks to the people who put this on YouTube.

bkatayab (11 months ago) you can purchase a CD on Amazon for under 12.00 good luck, this is amazing music
****
lusophile47 (11 months ago) Amazing - I spent a few years working in Africa (Mozambique) and my most enjoyable experience (as a non Catholic!) was going to Mass where the music style was very similar to this - literally would have shivers running up your back - fantastic!
****
hsoenario (10 months ago) This is hauntingly beautiful. Deep and melancholy, yet full of life's energy. Thanks for posting this. I bought the original LP too.
It was around that time that Phillips issued another exotic mass the Misa Criolla.
I have collected 2 more African masses:
Zaire with children choir of Lwiro Catholic Church and Mass and Hyms from Monestery of Keur Moussa, Senegal.
There is on cd Missa Mexicana and Misa Tango.

dollydot123 (3 months ago)  What's so amazing is there is no musical accompaniment. Only the drum and the chior's voices
****
ReDeads (3 months ago) This touches my heart.. :)
****
mbishop76 (2 months ago) It has been reissued on CD.
 
But to my joy, I'm used to hearing it sourced from "If...." and great old Philips records--crackle pops and all, because you can FEEL the joy everyone who listened to that old record before you felt.
But wonderful news for all in time for Christmas.

sauerlemon (2 weeks ago) Jimmy Page recommends Missa Luba in the February 2010 issue of Mojo magazine. I grew up with the record in my house. My dad, who's a good 49 years older than me, tried to get me to listen when my age was in the single digits. I didn't get it then. Next time I visit, I'll tell him the guitarist of Led Zeppelin recommended I give Missa Luba another try and see what he says.

Azizip17 (3 minutes ago) Thank you very much for posting this excerpt of this equisitely beautiful recording. I LOVE the Missa Luba record. I played it A LOT and I love both sides of the record-the mass and the traditional singing. But sometime in the 1980s I lost my copy of this incomparable record.
I've been looking for the Missa Luba record for years with no success. I'm delighted to know that at least some of the original record is on YouTube. Thanks again for your post!!!
