Since the 1960s, Paul Winter has been in the vanguard of musicians whose art expresses special appreciation for the natural music of our world - wolf, whale, wind and water, combined with everything from Bach to Bossa Nova. His albums "Common Ground" and "Callings" are cultural landmarks. His latest 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 tells about the making of "Missa Gaia," and his lifelong love affair with music that “presses your wonder button.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
