His 1982 work, "Missa Gaia" (Earth Mass), commissioned by the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, is a testament of faith, joy, thanksgiving and reverence for the special gift that is Mother Earth. In this visit Paul and host Phil Catalfo discuss the making of "Missa Gaia," and his lifelong love affair with music that “presses your wonder button.” (hosted by Phil Catalfo)
